Fairview woman sentenced for sex acts with 4-year-old boy


A Fairview woman who photographed her sex acts with a 4-year-old boy and traded child pornography on the Internet will spend at least 13 years in prison.

Carisa Wimp, 32, was convicted Monday, Feb. 6, in Yamhill County Circuit Court and sentenced to 160 months in prison. She pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree sex abuse and one count of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct, said Deputy District Attorney Ladd Wiles, who prosecuted the case.

As part of Wimp's plea bargain, two counts of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct and charges of first-degree sex abuse, first-degree sexual penetration and first-degree sodomy were dismissed, Wiles said.

Wimp also will be registered as a sex offender and serve 45 months of post-prison supervision, Wiles said.

Judge Ronald W. Stone said he couldn't find words to express his disgust at the acts, according to a news article in the McMinnville News-Register. Stone said it was hard to read the police reports, which indicated the Internet trade included images of bestiality and child sex.

'The judge was at a loss for words, and he usually gives (defendants) a lecture,' Wiles said.

Wimp wrote in her plea petition that she was under the influence of marijuana and methamphetamine during the time of the abuse, Wiles said.

The McMinnville News-Register reported that Wimp's sister borrowed Wimp's cell phone and discovered an image of Wimp bathing with the boy at a home in McMinnville in January 2011. Police examined the cell phone's memory card and found additional images of Wimp engaging in a variety of sex acts with the boy.

Wimp was arrested in August 2011 and lodged at Yamhill County Jail.

Police also searched Wimp's home in Fairview. Wiles said there was evidence that Wimp traded pornographic images with an out-of-state resident.

Wiles said the boy is living with his family.
