Two girls in Oklahoma have been arrested after police uncovered an alleged plot to win a baby custody battle by planting graphic pictures of kids on a father’s telephone.
Lacey Hucks, 33, conspired along with her good friend Angel Moore, 44, to plant greater than 800 pictures of kid sexual abuse on an outdated telephone of Hucks’ husband, police stated.
“It was a giant plot, however we unfolded it,” Garvin County Sheriff Jim Mullett told local news station KFOR earlier this week. “I haven’t seen something this detailed and this so thought-out to attempt to get any person put away.”

“To take the time to search out all these screenshots, , it’s very disturbing. Very, very disturbing,” Mullett instructed KFOR. “That is excessive.”
Investigators launched the person after he spent an evening in jail. They started to query the ladies’s story, partly as a result of the husband’s most present telephone had no such graphic pictures on it. Police questioned the 2 girls, and shortly realized that it had been an elaborate hoax so Hucks might win an upcoming baby custody battle.
Hucks and Moore had plotted to border the husband way back to December. once they collected the photographs, a May 2 affidavit alleges.
“[Moore] admitted that she was by no means at [the husband’s] residence and by no means noticed him with the telephone,” the affidavit stated. “[Moore] said that she thought she was doing the correct factor for [Hucks].”
Mullett stated it was a plan the 2 girls had “rehearsed.”
“The spouse simply got here up with this loopy story and it was plausible at first,” Mullett told KFOR.
Each girls have been charged with conspiracy and knowingly reporting a false crime. Hucks additionally faces a further cost of aggravated possession of the photographs.
