A North Hills woman named last month as one of two suspects sought in connection with a child pornography case tied to the San Fernando Valley has been federally indicted.
The indictment comes one month after tips provided by the public resulted in the identification of the woman allegedly involved in the production of a widely circulated series of child porn images taken about 11 years ago. The victim in the photos has been located, and confirms that she was between the ages of 11 and 13 at the time the pictures were taken. The victim had lived with the suspect who worked as a prostitute and provided the victim with crack cocaine and directed the child to engage in sexual acts with her male clients on multiple occasions.
The woman is currently being held without bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in federal court on February 13. She is charged with four counts of Conspiracy to Produce Child Pornography, Production of Child Pornography, Conspiracy to Engage in Child Sex Trafficking and Child Sex Trafficking. If convicted, she could be facing a federal prison sentence of 10 years to life.
