Virginia woman arrested for sending child porn to Wyoming man

By KVOW/KTAK News Director Leslie Stratmoen

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cheyenne says a woman from Virginia was arrested this week for taking photos of herself engaged in sexual activity with a 3-month-old child then sending those images to a man in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

In a release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the man was identified as 49-year-old James Hawkins. He’s already pleaded guilty to the charge of receiving child pornography in the U.S. District Court for the District of Wyoming. He now faces a prison sentence of at least15 years because he’s a convicted sex offender.

The woman was identified as 23-year-old Jessica Shockley. She faces 15-30 years in prison, if convicted of producing the images. The distribution charge carries a penalty of 5-10.

She was arrested Wednesday by ICE agents. That’s the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement team. Other agencies involved in the investigation included the FBI, Wyoming Department of Probation and Parole and the police department of Rock Springs, along with authorities from Virginia.
