38-year-old Christina Cortez of Corpus Christi, was taken into custody after sickening images of her sexually abusing a child was found in her possession, according to a criminal complaint.

The photos were allegedly taken on the premises of the Coastal Bend Child Care facility. Cortez then sent the photos to Matthew Harbin, 29, who lived in Brownsville, using a fake name as he was wanted for sex crimes in Alabama, police said.

Harbin shared the photos with a man in England. The man turned out to be an undercover agent. Harbin used the email address, police said.
