PENSACOLA, Fla.An adult performer who was arrested on charges in March related to child porn was arrested again this week on human trafficking charges. According to court documents, a tipster called the Florida Abuse Hotline in January to anonymously report that a Pensacola clips performer who goes by the stage name Shesleah illegally masturbated in public areas. That tip led to a full-blown investigation in March by local authorities, which included a search warrant, and found that masturbation videos depicting Shesleah were purportedly recorded in a childrens room and in a doctors office while small children were heard in the background, according to court documents. After an initial search of her home and interrogation by the Escambia County Sheriffs Office deputies, Shesleah was charged with two counts of child pornography and four counts of lewd behavior with a victim under 16. Deputies said they uncovered videos of the clips performer, along with children heard in the videos. Apparently without an attorney present at the time, Shesleah, 27, went on to tell deputies that she is an actress who does taboo videos in a pornographic manner, according to an arrest report. An arresting deputy added in the report that Shesleah stated in order to fulfill the taboo fantasy, the voices of her children are pre-recorded and she only plays them during the filming her videos without them present. At the time, deputies charged her with lewd and lascivious behavior, possession of child pornography, aggravated assault and resisting arrest. But now, Shesleah also is accused of financially benefiting from sexual activity involving minorsa crime defined under Florida law as human trafficking. She is charged under the human trafficking statute, but under the provision that makes it a crime to engage in commercial sexual activity during which any child under the age of 18 is involved, Florida Assistant State Attorney Greg Marcille said in a statement this week. Shesleah was booked into the Santa Rosa County Jail on Monday without bond and remained in custody as of today.
