A Delaware County couple will be on probation for life after serving lengthy sentences for the sexual exploitation of a one and a half year old child.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says 30 year old Justin Crandall has been sentenced to 50 years in federal prison and 28 year old Jessica Crandall is sentenced to 25 years.

The Sidney couple admitted that in 2016 and 2017 they used a 17 month old child, who was enrolled in their daycare program, to engage in sexually explicit acts.

Federal prosecutors say Justin Crandall produced videos and images of the conduct.

New York State Police and the FBI found the sexually explicit images on a cellular phone and questioned the couple.  The Crandalls voluntarily confessed to exploiting the toddler.
