Couple Who Produced Child Pornography Laughed When Sentenced To Combined 2,340 Years

One couple will never again see the light of day after being convicted of child pornography and other charges. The judge was disgusted by the pair, neither of whom seemed to show any remorse for their crimes.

They were sentenced to a combined 2,340 years and may still yet get a few more centuries tacked on.

Matthew and Patricia Ayers were caught producing and distributing shocking child pornography. The victim was an anonymous child in their custody. The two had each performed sexual acts with the little girl. One would sexually abuse the girl while the other would snap the photos.

Between 2010 and 2013, the Ayers sold the photos for profit to their clients. Clients would pay cash for Matthew or Patricia to perform requested sex acts. Over that period of time, the child was subject to recurring rapes and other vial activities.  

Patricia gleefully admitted to the unthinkable crime with a twinkle in her eye. According to reports, she showed absolutely no remorse while pleading guilty to 53 counts of lewd child imagery.

Matthew also seemed to show no sign of regrets. He pleaded guilty to 25 charges.

Patricia was sentenced to 1,590 years in prison, a number that reportedly caused her to laugh at her sentencing.

Matthew was sentenced to 750 years.

“I have been on the bench since 1998, and this is the worst case I have personally dealt with, including murders. You robbed this child of her childhood and her soul, and a maximum sentence is appropriate," said U.S. District Judge L. Scott Coogler, who sentenced the couple.

"The crimes the Ayers have admitted to are disturbing, inexcusable and sickening," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard D. Schwein Jr. "The Internet has a depraved and dark side which the Ayers lived in, bringing a child for whom they were responsible with them. I am proud of the work of the FBI on this case, and I applaud the sentences handed down today, as the Ayers will spend the rest of their natural lives behind prison bars."

Many people say it's not even enough, and a lot of people are calling for the death penalty for the couple.

"What’s the point for anything over 100 yrs, if you want to make a statement give the death penalty," said one person on the AWMA Facebook page.

"Just get rid of them, now tax payers have to take care of the POS and her nasty husband. Don't seem right," said another.

"That's just ridiculous and impractical. They're going to serve a single lifetime of 30, 40, 50 years or so. If their crimes are so egregious how about we cut to the chase and hand them the death penalty? Clearly the system doesn't believe they're able to be rehabilitated so don't waste the money keeping evil alive. It serves no practical purpose. They're not worth the money it'll take," said another.

Alabama is a death penalty state, but the sentence is generally only reserved for murderers. Death might be letting these two people off too easily, though. Remaining in jail, they would suffer longer. The couple have another trial ahead, and they might rack up a little more time.
