Staff report


An Austintown woman has been charged after police and the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation found sexually explicit images of her with two children and a dog.

The images were found after her boyfriend was arrested last month in Niles in a child-pornography case.

Connie Ramirez, 43, of Meridian Road was arrested Wednesday and arraigned in Mahoning County Court in Austintown on charges of rape, gross sexual imposition, pandering obscenity with a minor and possession of criminal tools.

BCI found images and videos on a cellphone of Ramirez with 8- and 9-year-old female relatives and a dog after searching her boyfriend William Brock’s Niles home in July.

Brock was arrested on July 19 and faces multiple charges of child pornography, including pandering obscenity involving a minor, in Trumbull County.

Neighbors of Brock’s said he liked to dress up as Santa Claus.

Ramirez confessed to police that she was the woman in the pictures and videos. During the interview with police, Ramirez admitted rubbing ointment on one child for sexual stimulation, according to an investigative report. She also admitted sending the explicit content to her boyfriend, according to reports.

Several items were seized from her home and are being reviewed for additional evidence.

Ramirez is being detained on a $500,000 bond at the Mahoning County jail.

Austintown police, Niles police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation assisted in the investigations.

Smear them with A1 sauce and let some of the hungry stray dogs picked up by the dog warden have at her and her boyfriend "Santa Claus".

Just the tip of the iceberg. Check out all of those she had been in contact with. What places did she frequent? Nothing is off limits for these perverts. The decay of moral values is rampant. How should she be classified? Should they be allowed to marry four legged dogs?
