An adult-film actress and her producer are facing charges for the alleged sexual abuse of a girl under the age of 10.

Melinda Smith, 35 - who works under the stage name Mercedes Carrera, and Jason Whitney, 43, were each charged Tuesday in Rancho Cucamonga with multiple counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 10 and one count of possession of a controlled substance, according to the San Bernardino Sun .

Officials said detectives conducted an "extensive interview with a minor female victim," and determined she had been sexually abused several times over four months by Smith and Whitney. The relationship between the victim and Smith and Whitney has not been released at this time.

“The sexual abuse consisted of inappropriate touching, oral copulation and digital penetration, which occurred over four months,” the sheriff’s statement said.

Whitney is reportedly a pornographic movie director and producer in the adult-film industry.

A search warrant served Friday Feb. 1 at the home of the perpetrators led police to methamphetamine and two loaded handguns. A makeshift studio for adult film shoots was also discovered in the bedroom.

Sheriff’s officials did not indicate if they believe the alleged victim’s assaults were recorded.

Smith and Whitney were arrested after questioning and were being held without bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
