— A woman is accused of deliberately posting a nude photo of her teenage daughter on the girl’s Facebook page.
The girl’s face, breasts and genitals were clearly visible, investigators said.
The mother, Lynda A. Rusk, 50, was charged Wednesday in Tippecanoe Circuit Court here with child exploitation, a Class C felony, and possession of child pornography, a Class D felony.
A warrant has been issued for Rusk’s arrest.
The accusations against her stem from an incident that happened a year ago, on Nov. 8, 2011. It took a year to bring charges because of time required to subpoena Facebook, Rusk and her daughter’s cellphone provider, along with time needed to review the paperwork and evidence, according to Detective Mark Pinkard of the Lafayette Police Department.
