Christine Weston Chandler, known online as Chris Chan, has been moved to the Central Virginia Regional Jail in the town of Orange, Virginia, Insider confirmed.
Chandler was charged with incest after a leaked audio recording spread online that purported to depict Chandler describing in detail how she had sexual relations with her 79-year-old mother.
According to their website, the Virginia Regional Jail has a design “capacity of 96 inmates” and a staff of around 50.
Chandler was arrested outside of a hotel in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Sunday, and initially held at the Henrico County Jail after the audio recording, as well as purported texts, began circulating online on Friday.
The Central Virginia Regional Jail could not confirm whether Chandler’s bond had been set as of Wednesday. Court records reviewed by Insider did not include attorney information or an upcoming court appearance on Wednesday.
Chandler is known for creating the online character Sonichu, an illustrated combination of the characters Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog. She has also been the target of trolling and online scrutiny since her content gained popularity in 2007. Most of Chandler’s emails, private diary entries, and personal conversations of the last decade have been leaked online and storied on the CWCki, a Wikipedia-style site with over 2,000 entries.
The original forum version of CWCki later became Kiwi Farms, a popular internet forum that has been linked to multiple suicides and the Christchurch, New Zealand, shooter.
