The mother of a five-year-old girl says she is horrified after learning the babysitter she trusted with her child is now facing, along with her boyfriend, some 130 charges of sex-related offences against young children.
The couple -- Shayne Lund, 22, of Penetanguishine, and his girlfriend, Avery Taylor, 20, of Orillia -- are charged with several counts each of counselling and conspiring to kidnap a child, making and selling child pornography, invitation to sexual touching, voyeurism, sexual assault and bestiality.
In an interview outside of court, the five-year-old's mother, who cannot be identified, says her daughter was allegedly blindfolded while being babysat, and given a taste test that involved sampling ketchup chips and strawberry and banana-flavoured condoms.
“It’s a parent’s worst nightmare,” said the mother during the interview. “It’s horrifying. It’s disgusting.”
