Woman Tries to Frame Husband With Child Porn to Win Custody of Kids: Police

A woman and her friend in Oklahoma allegedly tried to frame her husband with child porn as part of a revenge plot to win custody of their children, according to police.

Garvin County police said that last month Lacey Husks allegedly asked her friend, Angel Moore, to help her get revenge over her estranged husband, Brandon.

Sheriff Jim Mullet told Fox 25: "This is kind of a crazy deal because there is a plot against a man over custody of children."

He later added: "The women got together and thought to conspire to put him in jail and get him out of the picture."

Mullet added Husks is upset as Brandon could now end up with custody of their children, according to the network.

Documents seen by Fox 25 said Husks took 900 screenshots of naked children while using her estranged husband's phone and then notified the police.

Husks then took the phone to police in Wynnewood in the hope that officers would investigate her estranged husband.

But officers said they believed there were inconsistencies in her story and instead chose to investigate Husks.

Mullet told the network: "She thought it was the right thing to do and it ended up being the wrong thing to do.

"The female who came up with the idea, she is uncooperative. She doesn't want to talk. These two females came up with the idea and plotted to make this happen and it backfired.

"Now, they are the ones looking at some jail time for this."

Husks and Moore have since been charged with conspiracy and false reporting.

Mullet told Fox 25: "This is unacceptable to me. This is disturbing because they are conspiring to put someone in jail for the rest of their life. They are exploiting children in order to do that.

Husks remains in jail on a $250,000 bond.

Newsweek has contacted the Garvin County Sheriff's Office for comment.

According to legal firm Coventon Criminal Defense, for the possession of a single image of child pornography, a person is subject to five years in prison as well as a fine of up to $5,000.

The firm added: "However, each image, or even each copy of an individual image, is counted as a separate offense.

"If a person has a single picture of his or her minor girlfriend stored on a home computer, on his or her cell phone, and printed and kept in his or her wallet, it would be considered possession of three separate items of child pornography."
