ATTICA, N.Y. (WIVB) – An Attica woman has been charged with first degree sexual abuse after police say an individual received a video from her depicting a sexual act by a child.

Victoria L. Young, 23, of East Avenue was charged Wednesday with first degree sexual abuse, use of child less than 17 for sexual performance, and endangering the welfare of a child.

Attica Police received the complaint about the video on Sunday. After an investigation by Attica Police and Wyoming County Department of Social Services/Child Protective Services, police executed a search warrant at Young’s residence.

Young and the victim are related.

She is scheduled to return to court Feb. 5.
