Amber Schmidt: Feds say she told them the pictures aroused her.
WTF is in the water in DFW these days?

Three weeks ago we brought you the story of Erika Perdue, the wealthy attorney's wife who allegedly confessed to amassing, over a period of many years, a huge hoard of kiddy porn while her husband was off at work.

And now there's Amber Schmidt. According to a press release from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the 24-year-old Garland woman was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison last week following her January guilty plea for transporting and shipping child pornography.

According to the release, Schmidt sent child porn to fellow Garland resident Gary Lee Jackson, who is now serving 30 years for offenses related to this investigation. She reportedly told investigators that she sent the stuff to the 26-year-old Jackson because she "knew he was into that."

And investigators say that she was, too.

Gary Jackson: Schmidt told agents she sent him child porn because she knew he was "into that."
She reportedly told them that she knew she had to send porn in order to get porn. Some of the images depicted children engaged in acts of bondage and assorted other sadism. Chat logs with Jackson and the others in her network revealed her to be an enthusiastic recipient of such filth. According to ICE, in the chats, she continually asked for more pictures and "acknowledged how sexually aroused she was by them."

The case came to the authorities' attention last year, after Jackson left his cell phone in an acquaintance's car, and the acquaintance went to police.

This is creating the desire for children to be raped and molested.  Are you sick?  With child rape being at epidemic proportions in the USA someone better crack down on it before we are a nation of perverts with little reguard for our children or our neighbors' children. If we do not protect the most innocent and weakest among us who will stand up for the children?

Perverts who belong locked up for life.  All these people condone and contribute to the rape, molestation, and abuse of children.

What isn't right is freaks like this are wasting our water and air supply just by existing, and now taxpayers get to pay to support them. Although, I suspect they may already have been living off taxpayers. I'd rather pay for 3 hots and a cot, than for the welfare and food stamps and whatever else scum like this get.

i dont know,.. while undeniably foul, and definately deserving of some sort of punishment and monitoring,.,a harsh prison sentence for someone guilty only of watching/downloading even kiddie  porn,  is,..not right.

C'mon Texas.... can't believe ya'll didn't just run them thru the express checkout lane... that's what they deserve, instead we will have to pay for these sick f**ks to 3 hots and a cot for the next 14+ years... fry them both, we know they can't be rehabilitated.

@Ipackin Its a shame you think that way. Viewing children as sexual objects is WRONG and SICK. If there were not sick and twisted people looking at this crap there wouldnt be a market for it. They are perpetuating the abuse regardless of actual participation. In my opinion if you are looking at it, you are aroused by it because otherwise you are just sickened and it holds no interest to you other that wanting it to stop. Do you think the children who were abused agree with you? If it were your child you might think differently. No one deserves to have their innocence stolen from them.
