BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) — A federal court jury began deliberations Wednesday in the case against a woman accused of selling a 12-year-old-girl, and the landlord who accepted her as back rent.
Linda O’Connor, 46, of Norwich, and Dean Sacco, 49, of Jersey City, N.J., are charged with buying a child for sex, sex trafficking of a child, and possessing and producing child pornography for filming encounters with the girl. Sacco also is accused of driving over state lines to have sex with a minor.
If convicted, the pair could be sent to prison for the rest of their lives.
The U.S. District Court jury heard nearly four weeks of testimony.
