Christopher Swofford, of Brownsboro, was convicted in 173rd District Court of the aggravated sexual assault of a child under the age of 10, according to a news release Wednesday from Henderson County District Attorney Scott McKee.

Swofford, 33, also was convicted of indecency with a child by sexual contact and indecency with a child by exposure.

Assistant District Attorneys Nancy Rumar and Justin Weiner prosecuted the case.

The trial began Oct. 28 and involved testimony from Swofford’s wife, Sasha, who had previously been convicted in June by a Henderson County jury for acts related to the same events. Throughout the week, Weiner and Rumar presented evidence collected from an investigation by Henderson Co­unty Sheriff’s Investigators Jessica Halbert and Nick Webb.

Evidence presented included four hours of homemade pornography in which Swofford discussed sexual offenses with children while engaging in sadomasochistic acts with his wife. There also was testimony from the victim that graphically described the offenses committed by the Swoffords.

“In all my years as a prosecutor, this case is one of the most disturbing and wicked I have ever worked on,” McKee said.

Judge Moore will assess punishment on Jan. 9 following a punishment hearing.
