A 32-year-old woman in Florida and her 34-year-old biological brother were arrested this week after they allegedly filmed themselves engaging in consensual sexual acts in the presence of two children.
Samantha Lyne Tober and Leonard Charles Tober, Jr. were taken into custody on Monday and charged with six counts each of incest and lewd or lascivious exhibition (domestic) on a victim under age 16, both felonies, authorities announced.
Samantha Tober is also facing one additional count of capital sexual battery on a child under the age of 12 (domestic).
According to a press release from the Ocala Police Department, the investigation into the Tober siblings began when multiple people on June 25 reported to an OPD officer that Samantha Tober had “sent nude images of a 7-year-old child and that she made verbal statements of sexual abuse to the child, including that she often engages in sex with her brother.”
The investigation was taken over by an OPD detective and agents with the state Department of Children and Families. Investigators said that during an interview with Samantha Tober, she granted them permission to search her cellphone. The search did turn up nude images, but police said they determined the images to be “erotica,” rather than child sexual abuse material.
