A soldier from an upstate military reservation is accused of watching his wife have sex with a 15-year-old girl via Skype while he was stationed in Afghanistan, cops said.
Shawn S. Raymo, 22, and wife Jessica M. Raymo, 21, were each charged with one count of felony use of a child less than 17 in a sexual performance and one count of misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child, according to New York State Police.
The long-distance cyber-sex allegedly took place in July of 2011, when Jessica Raymo was at Fort Drum and her husband was in Afghanistan.
Jessica Raymo is accused of having oral sex with the minor while her husband watched.
“We are constantly trying to brief our soldiers on things that they should not be doing,” Lt. Col. David Konop, a spokesman for Fort Drum told the Daily News, adding that he is unaware of anything like this happening before with Drum soldiers.
Because the case is now with civilian authorities, Konop said he was unable to give any additional information, but did say he believes people will be surprised when they hear the news.
The couple was arraigned in a LeRay court and sent to Jefferson County Correctional Facility on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond, representatives there told the Daily News.
Police are waiting for action from a grand jury.
