SAN ANTONIO-- A man and a woman serving in the U.S. Army are in trouble with the FBI, accused of producing child pornography.

According to an arrest affidavit, Sgt. Kimberly Epperson, 24, and Sgt. Wade Perkins, 26, met at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston in February of 2011.

Agents said Epperson and Perkins recorded sexual acts involving a 3-year-old boy. They were both arrested after agents found photos and video on cell phones belonging to the couple.

The alleged victim referred to Perkins as the "bad man" and "sweaty bad man" who hurt him, according to the affidavit. The document also says that Perkins admitted to being an excellent "manipulator" who receives pleasure from the activities he's accused of doing.

Epperson told authorities that Perkins talked her into producing child pornography, according to the affidavit.

Perkins, who is from Dallas, Oregon, was recently transferred to Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas.

If convicted, Epperson and Perkins could face up to 30 years in prison.

They are both expected in court later this week for detention hearings.
