An Oklahoma woman pleaded guilty to three counts of producing child pornography.
Laura Jean Shoulders, 46, has been sentenced to 27 years in prison after being convicted of making videos of herself performing sexual acts on the one-year-old child.
Shoulders was arrested in Burns Flat, by several law enforcement agencies. According to court documents, Shoulders met a Burlington man through a Craigslist advertisement.
The two began a relationship, which gradually grew to be sexually explicit. They eventually began exchanging sexually explicit images.
Shoulders then sent the man three videos of herself performing sex acts with the child. Police said that the woman was babysitting the child at the time of the abuse.
She made the videos with her cellphone and sent it to the man. The man distributed the videos to others through the Internet.
Shoulders pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to 27 years in prison without the possibility of parole. She also has to register as a sex offender.
