CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Virginia woman accused of sending a Wyoming man images of herself molesting an infant has pleaded guilty to producing child pornography.

Authorities traced the images to Shockley.

Hawkins pleaded guilty earlier to receiving child pornography. He was sentenced to 17.5 years in prison.
