CLEVELAND - A horrific case of child sex abuse.

A man and woman are charged with luring boys as young as 9 to have sex with a 14-year-old girl who has mental disabilities. Prosecutors say the encounters were recorded and the man orchestrated it all from his prison cell.

40-year-old Andre Boynton and 37-year-old Anika George are both named in a 150-count indictment handed down by a Cuyahoga County grand jury Thursday.

The charges against them include human trafficking, rape and kidnapping, among others.

George had already been indicted on dozens of charges related to the case back in the summer of 2014.

Boynton is already serving a 10-years to life prison sentence at the Marion Correctional Facility for kidnapping and raping a 13-year-old girl in 2008.

Prosecutors say from prison, he directed George to find boys to have sex with the girl who they both knew. They say George found four boys, around Cleveland, from 9 to 13.

The indictments claim during a one-month period in June and July of 2014, she would take the children to her apartment in North Royalton, and use her cell phone to record the boys having sex with her and the 14-year-old girl.

Prosecutors say each time, Boynton was listening and giving instructions from prison.
They say some of the encounters happened inside Anika George's car.

Prosecutors say although the illegal sex acts were recorded, they have no evidence that the recordings were ever sent to anyone else.

Authorities discovered what was happening after the mother of one of the boys asked him what he did while he was with George. He told his mother, she called other parents and they contacted police.

Prosecutors say the new indictment also accuses Anika George, who worked at a nursing home, of taking nude pictures of about a dozen elderly patients.

She is currently being treated at a psychiatric hospital.

George and Boynton are scheduled to appear in court on March 3.
