Boston nanny accused of child porn: Parents connected with her online are urged to come forward

The Suffolk District Attorney’s office said Tuesday that parents who have engaged online with a Boston nanny accused of child porn are being urged to come forward.

Stephanie Lack, 36, has been charged with possession of child pornography and distribution of material to a child in a sex act.

The Suffolk DA’s office previously said that Lakh secured employment as a nanny and caregiver through the website Sittercity.com. Now, investigators have learned that Lack also had profiles on the website Care.com using the names “Stephanie Lack” and “Stephanie Germain” as recently as 2019.

The DA’s office said on Tuesday that parents and guardians who may have had contact with the former nanny on websites should tell investigators.

Suffolk DA Rachel Rollins said in a statement, “This person flew under the radar, gaining the trust of parents to gain access to children.” “While she is no longer accused of physical abuse of any of the children she cared for, we continue to investigate whether any of these children were harmed in any way.

“It is important that any family working with Ms. Lakh has access to information, guidance, support and resources,” the DA said.

Roxbury’s Lack pleaded not guilty in April to possession and distribution of child porn.

According to police, the charges emerged after an investigation by the Boston Police Department Crimes Against Children Unit on March 2 following a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The tip came that a user had uploaded potential child porn to the Kik messaging app.

According to the DA’s office, the police issued a search warrant on April 15 after confiscating a laptop and three smartphones at Lack’s house. Prosecutors say he admitted to interviewers that he had received and sent nearly 100 files of child porn and talked about abusing others.

The charges are pending in the Roxbury Division of the Boston Municipal Court amid an ongoing investigation led by detectives assigned to the Boston Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit and the Suffolk District Attorney’s Human Trafficking and Exploitation Unit.

Detectives and prosecutors continue to review Lakh’s employment history, social media communications and other investigative avenues.

Parents and guardians are being urged to email Lakinvestigation@fbi.gov with information for investigators, and to provide their name and best contact information.
