A Tennessee couple was arrested after they allegedly sold their four daughters — ages 5, 12, 15, and 17 — into child pornography. The pair was formally charged with multiple child sex offenses in Washington County, TN court on Oct. 18, following police claims they filmed pornographic videos of the girls for money.

Ronnie Lee McCall, 61, and Connie McCall, 40, were arrested after officials pursued them on child neglect charges for keeping their daughters in sub-standard living conditions in their Tenn. trailer home — but investigators also found a more gruesome situation going on. The pair was charged with selling their daughters into child pornography when police alleged they were taking their three oldest daughters to various locations to film sex videos with adults.

Police allege that Ronnie and Connie McCall brought their daughters to multiple adults’ homes to film them engaging in sex for money.

“There was money that changed hands between the individuals that were taking pictures and the parents,” District Attorney Tony Clark told WCYB. “The children said that they had been taken to various locations and performing sex acts with an adult.”

The couple would reportedly “take their children to South Carolina and a Washington County, Tenn. address where they would be filmed having sex with an adult,” Clark said. This activity is believed to have gone on for years.

Girls Removed From Tennessee Trailer Home’s Terrible Living Conditions

Authorities were first alerted to the McCall home on suspicion of child neglect. When police investigated, they found the girls to be suffering in “deplorable” conditions. The girls were described to have “rotten teeth, head and body lice, and flea bites” when they were found, according to The Daily Mail. D.A. Tony Clark also said that animal waste was found inside of the home.

“The amount of tooth decay, you can imagine was extremely painful. She had black teeth and holes in all the teeth, just really inexcusable,” Debbie Dunn, an investigator with the Johnson City Police Department, said of the youngest girl. All four girls were removed from the home in 2012.

Ronnie pleaded not guilty to all of his charges on Oct. 18, and Connie will be arraigned on Oct. 23.

The children are all said to be doing well and are in a foster home. Authorities hope that the four girls will be able to be adopted by the same family.
