TERRE HAUTE (AP) — A Terre Haute woman is accused of having a child take nude photos of her to send to her boyfriend in jail.

The Tribune-Star reports 30-year-old Jodi Roberts has been charged with performance before a minor that is harmful to minors. A judge on Monday ordered her held on $10,000 cash bond. She remained in the Vigo County Jail Tuesday night. Court records were not available to see if she had hired an attorney.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, Roberts had a child under age 13 take nude or semi-nude photos that Roberts mailed to her jailed boyfriend. She was arrested after jail staff seized the photos.

She is due back in court Wednesday.
