PRINCETON (WVVA) - A Mercer County woman has pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault and sexual abuse of a minor.

Kimberly Cox entered the plea in Mercer County Circuit Court Tuesday morning.

The charges Cox pleaded guilty to involve a four-year-old minor.

Cox was initially arrested in 2012 after allegedly taking sexually-explicit photos of a 14-year-old minor of which she was the parent or guardian of.

As part of Tuesday's plea, Cox agreed to testify against John Spaulding, a co-defendant and her boyfriend.

Investigators say Spaulding pressured Cox to send him the sexually-explicit photos. 

Sentencing for Cox is set for January.
