BARRIE – The mother of a five-year-old girl says she is “shocked,” “horrified,” and “disgusted” after learning the babysitter she trusted is now charged, along with her boyfriend, with some 130 sex-related offences against young children.

The couple, Shayne Lund, 22 and his girlfriend, Avery Taylor, 20, of Orillia are charged with several counts each of counselling and conspiring to kidnap a child, making and selling child pornography, invitation to sexual touching, voyeurism, sexual assault and bestiality.

Lund faces 120 total charges while Taylor faces 16.

A third female, Katheryne Thompson, 19, of Orillia, a former girlfriend of Lund, has also been arrested in connection with similar offences and is awaiting a bail hearing. It is not yet known how many charges Thompson faces.

Police started their investigation after an alleged victim came forward. Since then, four more alleged child victims between the ages of two and 10 have been identified. Animals have also been identified as victims.

The charges are so “disturbing” that the Crown has announced it will be seeking to have the accused deemed dangerous offenders if they are found guilty, which could keep them behind bars indefinitely.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun outside court, the mother of the five-year-old, who can not be identified, said her daughter was allegedly blindfolded while being babysat and given a taste test that involved tasting ketchup chips and, unknown to the child, strawberry and banana-flavored condoms.

“It’s a parent’s worst nightmare,” said the mother. “It’s horrifying. It’s disgusting.”

She said she has learned other “sordid” details that she was not able to talk about.

She and her fiancé said they got a call from Orillia OPP three weeks ago and were asked to come and identify photos of their child. The mother looked at several photos of her little girl, showing close-ups of her genitals that were allegedly taken while she changed into her bathing suit to go to the beach with the babysitter. The mother said Taylor, who worked at a McDonald’s restaurant, told her she was taking a college child care worker course.

“She kept asking if she could borrow my daughter to work on an assignment,” said the mother. “I said OK, of course … I trusted her.”
