Man, woman from northwestern Indiana accused of buying, selling girl for use in child pornography

2 indicted Wednesday

HAMMOND, Ind. - A man and woman face federal charges in connection with the sale of a young child for use in producing child pornography, prosecutors said.

A Gary woman sold her 1 1/2-year-old daughter to 39-year-old Christopher M. Bour so he could use the child for porn, prosecutors said.

The Times of Munster reports the two Gary residents were indicted Wednesday.

Bour faces charges of buying a child to produce child pornography, producing child pornography and possessing child pornography featuring a minor younger than 12.

The child's mother is charged with selling her daughter for the production of child pornography and permitting the child to participate in its production.

She's accused of selling and transferring custody and control of her child knowing the toddler would "engage in sexually explicit conduct."
