Mother jailed five years for raping 2-year-old daughter, said she did it to please boyfriend

Antonio Boleware, 38, has been arrested on child pornography chargesA Washington woman was sentenced to five years in prison for raping her two-year-old girl and sending pictures of the abuse to a known pedophile.

Joanna Jean Olson, 44, was given five years by the judge on Friday and a lifetime of monitoring upon her release.

Olson, who lives in Longview, Washington, and has at least three other children, admitted to taking the photos to please her boyfriend, Antonio Boleware, 38, of San Diego.

Boleware was a registered sex offender who had been convicted of two crimes against children.

He had already served six years in prison in the rape case of a 13-year-old girl, reports the San Diego Tribune.  

Olson took at least a dozen photos of her little girl being sexually abused and sent them to Boleware at his request, said prosecutors, according to Seattle Pi.

‘I totally accept responsibility for my crime. … I was desperately looking for love, and fell for the wrong guy. I did whatever he asked,’ she told U.S. District Judge Robert Bryan.

Bryan sentenced her to the minimum term, not the nine years that the state was seeking.

Her defense attorney argued that Olson had no malice nor intended to harm, but rather exercised faulty judgment and ‘extreme stupidity’ while under the manipulating influence of the experienced criminal Boleware.

‘Clearly she allowed herself to be manipulated and pressured to an extreme degree by Mr. Boleware,’ said assistant public defender Miriam Schwartz.

But assistant U.S. Attorney Kate Vaughan said the fact that Olson would give in so easily to a boyfriend, when she herself didn’t have any compelling urges or psychopathy, but was violating her child merely to earn ‘attention, affection, and love’ made her a threat to other children.

In a letter of support to the court, one of Olson’s friends called her a ‘broken woman’ who ‘needs help.’ The friend added: ‘She made a rash decision out of desperation. She really is a good person.’

Boleware, known as Tony Papabear online, and the mom had known each other for years, but only recently had the mother agreed to send videos and photos of her little girl being sexually abused, reports the outlet.

Boleware then allegedly began sharing the material with what he thought was another pedophile in a Kik chatroom, but was in fact an undercover agent.

‘She’s always been an fantasy pedo mom,’ Boleware said in a chat with the undercover officer, according to charging papers. ‘I just made it real for her.’

He also said that Olson gave him permission to ‘breed’ with the girl.

Investigators were able to identify Olson through watching Boleware’s Facebook page.

She was arrested in August, and on the day the FBI searched her house, she reportedly wrote she was ‘feeling emotional’ on Facebook.

Olson’s handle online was mommy3boys2girls. After her arrest, three children were removed from her home, and it’s not clear if she has another child, as her handle would imply.

Olson, who pleaded guilty to distribution of child pornography, remains jailed pending her transfer to federal prison.

Boleware pleaded guilty to federal pornography charges and is scheduled to be sentenced July 29 at a federal court serving Southern California.
