Michigan woman involved in 'worst case' of child porn in decades sentenced

A Michigan woman who created sexually explicit videos of young children at her home has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Anngela Boyle, 27, was sentenced Wednesday, almost a week after her husband, Colin Boyle, was sentenced to 60 years, after the two had pleaded guilty to producing child pornography, Detroit Free Press reported.

The Boyles had taken nude photos and videos of four children, ages one to nine. Anngela had confessed to federal agents that the couple interacted sexually at least four times with a 1-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy.

One investigator said in 2016 that the case was the “worst” he had come across in 20 years.

“This type of investigation will always rock a community to its core and the gravity of the crime and the helplessness of the victims impacts even seasoned investigators,” Lake Orion Police Chief Jerry Narsh said last year.

An investigation into the Boyles began in 2015 after authorities found evidence that Colin, a registered sex offender, had viewed child porn online, and a subsequent raid of their home found a camera that had a video of a naked 1-year-old girl on it.

In an affidavit, an FBI agent allegedly wrote, “(The wife) explained to law enforcement that child pornography is the only thing that sexually excited Colin Matthew Boyle.”

The couple admitted to the FBI that they sent each other child porn via their cell phones.

Colin’s lawyer argued that while her client “admits to being ‘sick,’” he’s also a poet who deserves mental health treatment rather than a prison sentence.

The couple was charged with federal pornography crimes and criminal sexual conduct.
