Volusia County, FL (January 11, 2019) – A gastroenterologist and his girlfriend have been arrested after she shared nude pictures of her children with him. The man was identified as 42-year-old Trinetra Vaidya and his girlfriend was identified as 38-year-old Katja Goen. The two have been arrested on child pornography charges.

The two had been sharing explicit messages with one another and Vaidya then asked her to take photographs of her 11- and 12-year-old children when they were nude, such as in situations like showering and changing clothes.

One of the children found the images on her computer, which is when Vaidya said that he wanted the imaged to sexually gratify himself.
