She told me she showed the other female on the Internet (the boy's) penis. Amy said the person on the Internet wanted to see her touch it. Amy told me she touched (the boy's) penis for, like, a minute and he started to wake up so she stopped."

After being charged Friday, Vogt was quickly arrested on a $15,000 bond.

What about the other woman who encouraged her to commit the crime? Not an accomplice? No charges?
