Stephanie Hays, the 33-year-old Katy woman who's in jail after offering up three young children for sex, is -- allegedly -- scum, seriously disturbed, or an utter psychopath.
Hays was arrested after cops nabbed a Missouri man who was trying to have sex with kids and was involved in computer chats with Hays.
In the complaint filed with the court, Pasadena ISD police detective Matt Gray said Hays admitted to cops she'd been the person chatting with the Missouri guy and offering up three kids for sex.
(Gray heads the local task force aimed at internet crimes against kids.)
We got the details of the complaint. Frankly, we hoped it would include excerpts from the actual chats, because the more this stuff is exposed the better. Not for prurient reasons, but because when this stuff gets bowdlerized behind euphemisms in the mainstream media (for understandable reasons), some of the horror can be lost.

Instead, though, the complaint simply mentioned what it was Hays was offering. But that was sick enough:
[Hays] had an 11-year-old son and she lived with her two-year-old niece and five-year-old nephew. 'Stephanie' chatted on Yahoo and referred people to her pictures on MySpace. During these chats 'Stephanie' arranged for [the Missouri man] to come to her house to have anal sex and oral sex with her 11-year-old son, vaginal and oral sex with the two-year-old niece and other sexual activities with the five-year-old nephew.
Good Christ. That is one sick, sick puppy. We can only hope the kids somehow get through this shit.
