Virginia Woman Gets 20 Years in Child Porn Case

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A federal judge in Wyoming has sentenced a Virginia woman to 20 years in prison following her guilty plea to a charge of production of child pornography.

Federal authorities say Jessica Shockley of Bland, Va., sent images of herself sexually molesting an infant to a man in Wyoming in 2011. Authorities say she met the man in an Internet chat room.

U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson sentenced the 24-year-old Shockley Friday afternoon in Cheyenne.

Investigators arrested Shockley last year after finding the images on a cellphone belonging to James Hawkins of Rock Springs. Hawkins pleaded guilty earlier to receiving child pornography. He was sentenced last April to more than 17 years in prison.
