Bland Co. woman pleads guilty to federal child porn charge

Posted:

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) -- A Bland County, Virginia woman accused of sending a Wyoming man images of herself molesting an infant has pleaded guilty to producing child pornography.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports Jessica Shockley faces between 15 and 30 years in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday in federal court in Wyoming. She is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 4 in Cheyenne.

Investigators arrested Shockley in January after finding the images in question on a cellphone of James Hawkins of Rock Springs, Wyo. Hawkins told investigators he had met Shockley through a cellphone chat site.  Authorities traced the images to Shockley.

Hawkins pleaded guilty earlier to receiving child pornography. He was sentenced to 17.5 years in prison.
