MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 23-year-old Coon Rapids woman has been accused of exposing a toddler to another man via an Internet chat, police say.

Samantha Suzanne Reed has been charged with one count of disseminating pornographic work and one count of endangerment of a child.

According to the complaint filed in Anoka County, the mother of the child left the toddler with Reed, a relative, on the evening of July 21.

When the mother came home, she noticed that her toddler was only in a diaper and that Reed also wasn’t fully clothed. After opening the computer, the mother found a Facebook conversation that involved a video chat Reed was having with a man named Brett Evans.

Reed eventually admitted to police that she had been having sexual conversations with a man named Brett Evans over the Internet and had exposed the small child to the man.
