Mass. Mother Forces Daughter to Pose Nude on Web Cam

Photodisc/Thinkstock(ATTLEBORO, Mass.) -- A Massachusetts mother is facing child endangerment charges after authorities said she forced her daughter to pose nude in hopes of winning a $20,000 mother-daughter bikini photo shoot.

Ann Lussier, 41, of Attleboro, Mass., allegedly made her daughter strip down to her bra and underwear and then completely disrobe while a man who identified himself as a Florida-based photographer watched over Skype. Authorities did not dislocse the age of the child.

Lussier and her daughter were unable to see the photographer, who claimed his camera was broken.

"The parent had to show the man what both she and the victim looked like with no clothes on, reportedly so he could see the shape of their bodies," court documents stated.

A reportedly frustrated Lussier told her twin sister about the incident and how "uncooperative" her daughter was, according to court documents, which also stated the aunt heard her niece crying in the background.

The sister contacted authorities, who began a month-long investigation that culminated in the arrest of Lussier and Joshua Dunfee of Oxford Junction, Iowa, the man allegedly on the other end of the camera.

Dunfee is being sent to Massachusetts to face federal child pornography charges.

Lussier's lawyer, Ernest Solomon, told ABC News that his client is a victim of a "pervert."

Solomon would not comment on whether the mother admitted to the circumstances in the court documents, citing pending court action, but said she was seeking professional help while staying with relatives.

ABC News reached John Lussier, the girl's father. "This is a very sensitive matter and that's all I have to say," Lussier said.

The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families is currently investigating the case.
