The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Roger Smith and his unidentified woman

The unidentified woman is the mother of the two children involved in this case, so her name isn't being released- to protect the identities of the children. Regardless, both Roger Smith and this demented woman are accused of taking photos of the girls in "various stages of undress, arranged in sexually provocative positions and being sexually assaulted".

They were arrested after an undercover officer posing as a 13-year-old had a chat online with Smith, who "who sent images of his genitals to her via his Web camera".

Winners these two are.

That led agents to search his Hollandale home Feb. 28. They discovered two digital camera memory cards, one dated November 2007 and another dated February of this year.

The cards contained multiple images of the twins in various stages of undress, arranged in sexually provocative positions and being sexually assaulted.

The woman told investigators she and Smith took turns taking pictures of each of them sexually assaulting the girls. She said she would give her daughters cough syrup before the assaults.

The woman also said she was at Smith's house in Hollandale in August 2007 when Smith sent some sexually explicit pictures of the girls to someone online.

Smith told investigators he sexually assaulted the girls, and the February 2008 assaults took place at the woman's home. The affidavit describes her home as being in central Illinois but doesn't say what city she lives in.
