Alexandria Morra, a 21-year-old Canadian woman, has been arrested for allegedly performing more than 50 live sex shows in the country’s public libraries. Morra, also known as Alexa, was identified by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Friday and became the second woman arrested for filming herself performing sex acts in a public library this year. American Kendra Sunderland, 19, was arrested and charged in February for a similar offense performed in the library at Oregon State University.
Morra was charged with one count of performing an indecent act, according to the CBC. She had allegedly worked for the pornographic website MyFreeCams.com under the alias Lilsecrett during her library shows. She allegedly flashes, masturbates and uses sex toys in the videos shown on the website, which have recently been uploaded to a number of other adult websites, according to adult industry news website XBIZ.
Morra, who is a resident of the Windsor area, turned herself in to local authorities at around 7 a.m. Friday, CBC reported. She was released on a promise to appear in court, and is due to appear April 15.
An attorney for MyFreeCams reportedly told XBIZ last week that Morra is “a former model who was terminated for violation of company policy.”
“We were pretty shocked,” library CEO Kitty Pope told Toronto's National Post. “We learned about a young person in the library in January who was taking inappropriate pictures of herself. When staff discovered this, they tried to find out who she was. She wouldn’t identify herself so they asked her to leave.” Pope said the library learned from a CBC report last week that the woman had performed dozens of shows at desks in two libraries.
Police also believe the young woman also used Tim Hortons’ coffee shops as the location for her shows, according to the paper.
The arrest followed a CBC News investigation that uncovered the recordings. The first video appeared to be streamed in November, CBC reported, with the most recent one streamed in January. In the videos, a model using the screen name "lilsecrett" is seen in the library branches, sometimes with unsuspecting library users, including children, nearby.
Morra's lawyer, Tyler Jones, told the Windsor Star, “It’s been very stressful, of course. There has been an unanticipated amount of attention brought to this. But she is doing well under the circumstances.”
Sunderland, who was arrested and charged with public indecency last month, faces up to a year in jail and a $6,250 fine. But she has also been using her newfound notoriety to her advantage. She recently signed on to do a four-page spread for Penthouse magazine, Huffington Post reports, and shot a video for Playboy’s website last week, according to London's Mirror Online. She also recently launched her own website featuring more videos of her cam shows.
