Tampa couple receives life, 40 years for sexually abusing child

TAMPA, Fla. - A man and his wife received life and 40 years in federal prison, respectively, for having sex with a seven-year-old girl, federal prosecutors said.

Richmond Joseph McDonald, 40, and Shauna Maryann Boselli, 25, engaged in sexual activity with the girl following permission from her relative, prosecutors said. 

After the relative brought the child to Lowry Park Zoo for ice cream in July 2016, McDonald and Boselli sexually abused the child while the relative watched, prosecutors said. Two days later, the three adults engaged in sexual activity with the child at a hotel.

"A forensic analysis on all of the devices revealed that McDonald was in possession of over 1,300 child-pornographic images, including images and videos of the child victim performing sex acts," prosecutors said in a statement.

The relative, who was not named in the statement, received 75 years in prison after being convicted in federal court in Orlando.
