A 28-year-old Arizona woman is accused of molesting two young children and selling videos of the acts on the internet.
Keri Harwood of New River was arrested Sunday on suspicion of five counts each of child molestation and sexual exploitation of a minor.
Court documents and Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone say his office began investigating after receiving a tip from a friend of Harwood who discovered the videos after Harwood gave the friend access to her email account so he could help her play the Pokemon Go video game.
Arizona Central reports the children involved are 3 and 6 years old.
When confronted, she allegedly told police that she recorded the videos for a man she met online who offered to pay her to send them to him.
According to law enforcement, Harwood allegedly needed the money and did not want to disappoint the man, with whom she had been sexting for some time.
Harwood remained jailed Wednesday in lieu of $150,000 bond. It’s not immediately known whether she has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
New River is a rural community 33 miles (53 kilometers) north of Phoenix.
The Sheriff’s Office said they are pursuing a warrant to arrest the man who purchased the videos from Harwood.
