Family stands behind Chesapeake mom accused of making child porn with children

Chesapeake, Va. – The Chesapeake mom charged with using her own children to make child pornography appeared in court on Wednesday.

22-year-old Kanealeen Latouche has been formally charged with 30 crimes.
Also in court was Latouche’s mom. NewsChannel 3 caught up with her as she left the building.

“I don’t believe that my daughter did what being accused of her, ya know. She love her children. She take care of her children,” says Latouche’s mother.

Police say the boy and girl are two and three-years-old.

According to arrest warrants filed in court, Latouche sexually abused the children and used them to make child porn. Those documents also say she planned to sell it.

At this point, it’s unknown why Chesapeake police started investigating Latouche in the first place. It’s also unclear what evidence they found during their investigation.

Police do say cases like this are very rare. In fact, it’s the department’s first case of child porn involving a mother and child relationship since the start of their Internet Crimes Against Children Unit in 2010.

Right now Latouche remains behind bars. But, at a hearing on Friday a judge will decide whether to grant her bond. Latouche is also schedule to appear in court September 3 for a preliminary hearing.
