Sebastian County Woman Accused Of Distributing Child Pornography

SEBASTIAN COUNTY (KFSM) -- A woman is accused of sharing child pornography images.

Kelly Riley, 43, of the Jenny Lind community is accused of four counts of computer child pornography charges. She was arrested Jan. 5, but was bailed out Jan. 8 on a $10,000 bond.

When police arrested her, she was babysitting a 5-year-old, according to investigators. They have found no evidence that she harmed the child.

"Investigators got DHS involved and as far as we know, at this point there has been no evidence that she ever harmed this child but it still caused great alarm in the investigators that were working this case," said Captain Philip Pevehouse with the Sebastian County Sheriff's Department.

According to investigators, Riley shared images and videos of children performing sex acts on adults. The children appear to be between 6 and 10-years-old.

The images are very graphic, according to the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators with the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office and Homeland Security office said Riley was arrested for trading child pornography pictures online. They said Riley admitted during an interview to trafficking the images. She shared the images with other people, according to investigators. Those people may face charges also.

"We, of course work with the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children and we use their databases to understand who these children are. Sometimes they are known and it's already been discovered because these images get rehashed and moved around the internet. So, sometimes an image found in Arkansas may have originated in Eastern Europe for instance. With the resources that the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children have it helps us a great deal to figure out if these children are local," Pevehouse said.

The investigation continues. More details will be released pending forensic evidence of Riley's electronic devices. If more evidence is found, she will face additional charges, according to investigators.

This is a developing story.
