A MOM who filmed herself sexually abusing her four-year-old son and the family dog before trading the sick footage in an animal abuse chat room has been jailed for nearly 20 years.
Teela Moore Hendrix, 35, will spend the majority of the next two decades behind bars after pleading guilty to child pornography charges and the sexual assault of an animal.
The perverted mother filmed herself sexually abusing her young son before setting her sights on the family dog.
She then traded the video with an unidentified person she met in an online chat room dedicated to the sexual abuse of animals, according to reports.
While executing a search warrant on April 12 last year, The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office found the footage, which were both filmed in July 2018, on her mobile phone, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported.
Prior to her arrest, police said Hendrix had rammed her husband's car while he and her children were inside, before barricading herself inside their home.
She pleaded guilty to one count of transportation of child pornography and one count of creation of a 'crush video', which includes depictions of the sexual assault of an animal, as part of a plea deal.
Hendrix was sentenced to 235 months in prison – just 5 months short of 20 years – by Judge Curtis L. Collier for the sadistic offences.
Acting U.S. Attorney Francis M. Hamilton III said in a statement: "Mrs. Hendrix's sentence reflects the seriousness of her crimes and the enduring harm caused when offenders record and preserve their abhorrent exploitation of minors in visual media.
"Thanks to a partnership between the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Homeland Security Investigations, and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, Mrs. Hendrix's is now in prison, and her son is now safe."
Upon her release from prison, Hendrix will be subject to 10-years supervised release.
She will also be required to register as sex offender and abide by special conditions.
