Ex-jail guard gets prison for beating kids

BARTOW, Fla., Feb. 20 (UPI) -- A former Florida jail guard has admitted physically assaulting children and sending pictures to an online partner in Australia.

Robin Pagoria, 47, was sentenced to 20 years in prison Monday after entering a guilty plea, WFTS-TV in Tampa reported. She agreed to testify against Christopher Lobban, who lives in West Australia, and allegedly directed Pagoria on how to stage scenes to satisfy his fetish.

Florida is seeking Lobban's extradition. He has been arrested in Australia.

Pagoria, a detention deputy in Polk County in central Florida, was arrested in 2011. Investigators said she used handcuffs and straps to secure children to a table and would then beat them, recording her actions on videotape.

Lobban and Pagoria met on an online site for people with a spanking fetish.
