Elementary school teacher, 34, is arrested for 'creating child porn using her one-year-old son and sending it to her ex-boyfriend who sexually assaulted his four-year-old daughter'

A Florida elementary school teacher was arrested last week for allegedly creating child pornography for her ex-boyfriend that included her one-year-old son. 
Audra Mabel, 34, was terminated from Spring Lake Elementary School in Altamonte Springs where she worked as a kindergarten teacher, following her arrest on Thursday for allegedly producing and distributing child porn. 
Mabel was arrested after her ex-boyfriend, Justin Ritchie, 36, was taken into custody for allegedly sexually assaulting his four-year-old daughter, according to a criminal complaint filed by the US District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
Ritchie is married and has three children of his own, including a one-year-old.
Authorities started investigating him after his wife told police that she was bathing her three children, when her four-year-old told her that Ritchie 'had touched her vulva'.
On March 6, a forensic child interviewer spoke with the victim who told investigators that her father, Ritchie, had touched her 'many times'. 
Ritchie was arrested on March 8 and investigators said they found 10 videos and images on his cell phone that showed him 'sexually assaulting' his four-year-old and his one-year-old child. 
Another video allegedly shows Mabel using her one-year-old son 'to engage in or assist her to engage in sexually explicit conduct'. 
Mabel reportedly admitted to producing videos with the one-year-old in 2017 when she worked as a first-grade teacher at a school in Lansing, Michigan. 
She claimed that she sent the videos and photos to Ritchie, who was living in Florida, because they 'sometimes incorporated role-play and fantasies of child sex abuse into their sexual relations,' the complaint reads.
According to a criminal complaint, the pair would also read stories to each other about sex between children and adults. 
Their relationship ended in 2018 because Ritchie refused to leave his wife.
Ritchie has been charged with sexual battery on a child under 12. He has been booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.
His arraignment is scheduled for April 23. 
Mabel has been charged with producing and distributing child pornography.
