(Newser) – A female employee of a daycare center in Elyria, Ohio, has been arrested on two counts of rape. In court today, Heather Koon, 25, pleaded not guilty to the charges, which were brought after police say they found a video on Koon's computer of her assaulting a baby. The discovery was made while police were investigating Koon's boyfriend, who is a registered sex offender, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. A second victim was later identified, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

A police report says the video showed Koon "engaging in sexual conduct with an unknown infant," reports Fox19. The child was later identified by the baby's father by showing him photos of the video. "I still haven't wrapped my mind around it," he says. "It's every parent's worst nightmare." Koon's lawyer says she denies that she's the person in the video. "She says it is definitely not her," he says, per the Chronicle. "She's a young girl, she's 25. I just don't think it is what they (sheriff's department) are saying it is." Koon is being held on a $2 million bond, and will face court again next week.

Yep, another woman. I am sooo sick of women saying men are the perverts. It is the women who are sleeping with their students, molesting babies, killing their own children. Women are the real problem with sexual assaults today, not men.
