Chesapeake woman sentenced to 15 years for child porn

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A Chesapeake woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the production of child pornography.

A judge sentenced 22-year-old Shaniesta Kenay Banks Tuesday after she pleaded guilty back in December 2013 of conspiracy to produce child pornography. She was also ordered to a lifetime supervision following her release.

According to court documents, Banks was contacted by Robert Harold Scott, Jr. under his assumed online identity of “Mike Pyro.” Scott would routinely communicate with women in and around the Tidewater area to set up “sex parties,” where the women would work as prostitutes and Scott would pay them for their services.

In addition to the adult parties, Scott was found to be conspiring with and producing child pornography with several different women, including Banks. Police say Banks complied in return for the promise of money and produced child pornography with a 4-year-old.
