Missouri Woman Sentenced, Producing Child Porn at Walmart, Church, Malls

United States District Judge Rodney Sippel sentenced Heather McDorman to 288 months (24 years) in prison Friday. The 32-year-old Barnhart, Missouri resident pleaded guilty to five counts of producing child pornography and two counts of attempting to produce child pornography.

According to court documents, between February 1, 2018 and March 12, 2018, McDorman, at the direction of her boyfriend and co-defendant Zachary Hamby, attempted to take pornographic photographs of children in restrooms at South County Mall, Walmart, other area malls, park bathrooms and a church bathroom. McDorman, at the direction of co-defendant Hamby, also sexually abused a child and photographed and livestreamed some of the abuse so that Hamby could view it.  The abuse was produced using an IPhone and then mailed, shipped or transported in interstate and foreign commerce.

The St. Louis County Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case. Assistant United States Attorney Colleen Lang handled the case.
