An Oklahoma woman and her accomplice are facing charges after trying to frame her husband for possession of child pornography. The woman took more than 800 screenshots in an attempt to get her husband put behind bars before an upcoming child custody battle.

“It was a big plot, but we unfolded it. I haven’t seen anything this detailed and this so thought out to try to get somebody put away,” said Garvin County Sheriff Jim Mullet.

Lacey Hucks, 33, and Angel Moore, 44, scoured the dark web for more than 857 pictures of child pornography they were going to use to put on Hucks’ husband’s old phone to land him in jail.

The goal? Get her husband behind bars so Hucks could win an upcoming child custody battle.

According to court documents: “Angel stated that Lacey drove her to the Wynnewood Police Department to make the report and gave her the phone.” Moore also told police she saw the husband viewing the pornography at his home.

“It was a plan that they said that they rehearsed. She was never at the house. She never watched him look at a phone,” said Sheriff Mullet.

To inspect the claim further, Wynnewood Police asked Garvin County deputies to assist with the investigation. The husband was arrested after the accusation but was only kept overnight since investigators were quickly able to determine he was not guilty. No child pornography was found on his current phone.

Moore later confessed to the ruse and told authorities that “she thought she was doing the right thing for Lacey.” Moore was able to bond out of jail while Hucks remains in jail with a $250,000 bond. The pair is now facing charges including aggravated possession of child porn, conspiracy to commit a felony, and violation of the computers crimes act.

“It backfired on them and I’m glad that they were able to be in jail,” said Sheriff Mullet.
