Graphic: Babysitter accused of sexually assaulting kids with boyfriend, boasts in texts

HOUSTON (WITI) – A woman and her boyfriend are accused of sexually assaulting children and photographing them for exploitation, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Twenty-nine-year-old Ashley Dack is being charged with sexual performance by a child and super aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Her boyfriend, Patrick Schuneman, was also charged.

According to KPRC, court documents allege that Dack and Schuneman were performing sexual acts on children as young as 11-months-old.

Officials also claim the couple would send sexually explicit text messages to one another, describing the crimes.

KPRC says Dack was a babysitter, which gave her access to several of the victims.

Authorities say Dack was caught after bragging about the alleged crimes to a friend. When she asked him to charge her phone, he backed up text messages from her and called police.

Officials released one text message that was found on the couples’ phones.

We want to warn you -- the text messages you'll see below are disturbing.

Dack: But no one could hear her if we were in my car.

According to court documents, Dack also sent Schuneman graphic images of children engaging in sexual activity.

KPRC says one of the images allegedly showed Dack inappropriately touching an 11-month-old.

Authorities say her text message to him that day read, “Gonna get our pics 2night?” and posted a sexually graphic image of the baby.

Schuneman allegedly responded by saying “Best ever seen. Thank you,” and “Thank you so much for my gift.”

Officials learned the pictures were allegedly taken when Dack was babysitting the child.
