      A San Benito mother will spend the next 25 years in prison without the possibility of parole.

      Desiree Padilla pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a baby, recording the abuse and sending the pictures to a child predator she met on-line.

      The 22-year-old mother entered into a plea agreement on Wednesday morning.

      Prosecutors with the Cameron County District Attorney TMs Office said the baby girl was a 1-year old at time of the crime.

      Harlingen police arrested Padilla in February.

      Authorities said she sent the pornographic images to convicted sex offender James Copeland in the Corpus Christi.

      The two met on the social media network mocospace.
