Breach of Trust

She did this to an 8-year old girl she was taking care of.

I hope the girl and her family can eventually put this behind them.

Woman, 19, pleads guilty to child porn charges

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A 19-year-old Maryland woman has pleaded guilty to a child pornography charge after making a sexually explicit video of an 8-year-old girl she was caring for.

Patricia Ann Tasker of Hagerstown pleaded guilty Friday in federal court in Baltimore to possession of child pornography. According to court documents, Tasker showed the girl's mother the sexually explicit video on her computer, and the woman later brought it to authorities.

As part of a plea agreement Tasker will be required to register as a sex offender. She faces a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison, though a plea agreement says both prosecutors and defense attorneys agree that a sentence of between three and four years would be appropriate.
