An attorney’s wife from Texas was charged last year with collecting and trading child pornography online, and yesterday, she plead guilty to charges relating to the ongoing incidents.

Erika Susan Perdue, 42, received a sentence of 14 years in federal prison as part of a plea deal which has yet to be approved by a judge, according to dallasnews.com.

From dallasnews.com:

“She’d been distributing child pornography since 1999 and had so much of it, she lost track of her collection, authorities said.¬†She confessed to using ‘file-sharing child pornography every day,’ according to court documents. Perdue was arrested when she unknowingly shared some of the images with undercover police, who traced it to her computer.”

Authorities said it’s rare to see a woman trading in child pornography, according to dallasnews.com. Presumably it’s also rare for a seemingly typical housewife to drive a 2010 Camaro with the license plate “MY SYN,” but Ms. Perdue did that, too, in addition to calling herself Classybitch while trading the porn.

Reports say the pornography consisted of images of adults having sex with children. Ms. Perdue has agreed to pay one of the victims $5,000, a number which seems both arbitrary and low.
