Hempfield woman to remain jailed in connection with child sex video

Michael Coghlan

A Hempfield woman will remain in jail as she awaits trial on accusations that she shared a video depicting a woman performing a sex act on a child.

Westmoreland County Common Pleas Court Judge Christopher Feliciani on Tuesday denied a request to reduce the bond for Amanda Smith. The 29-year-old has been in jail on a $100,000 cash bond since being arrested Aug. 15.

Defense attorney John Hauser in court documents said Smith was indigent and unable to post that bond amount.

Police allege that Smith shared a video of a woman having sex with a 5-year-old boy. Police contend her boyfriend, Charles Jason Hunter, 32, and his former girlfriend, Corby Jo Kinzey, 24, both of Greensburg, recorded the alleged sex act with a child.

Hunter is charged with rape and other offenses and is being held without bond. His preliminary hearing before Greensburg Magisterial District Judge Chris Flanigan is scheduled for Thursday.

Kinzey is charged with the same offenses. She is being held without bond and is scheduled to appear for a formal court arraignment before Feliciani on Nov. 14.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
