Today top USA industry leaders AVN released a statement Adult film star Mercedes Carrera and her producer boyfriend Daemon Cins pleaded not guilty Wednesday to eight counts of sexually abusing a child under 10. The defendants—whose legal names are Melinda Smith, 35, and Jason Whitney, 43—allegedly abused an unidentified female minor “several times” over four months. “The minor reported it to her family, and the family reported it to us,” San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Detective Donald Patton said. “It’s very sickening that someone would do something like that to a child under the age of 10 years old.” Officers found drugs, guns, and a makeshift studio in their bedroom so they could film and record “various pornographic videos or web shows,” police said. Patton didn’t say how Smith and Whitney first targeted the girl, but said police “suspect there may be other victims.
