      Odessa mom gets 18 months for videotaped child porn

      Virginia Cheyenne Earnest

      A federal judge has ordered 18 months in prison for an Odessa woman who videotaped alleged sexual activity between two preschool-age children, instead of stopping it.

      Virginia Cheyenne Earnest has until Nov. 30 to report to federal prison.

      Investigators say Earnest was arrested in June over the March 2008 incident involving girls ages 3 and 4 as the youngsters bathed together. Earnest pleaded guilty in August to possession of child pornography.

      Court documents indicate the 33-year-old woman made a 20-minute video of the two children.

      U.S. District Judge Robert Junell on Tuesday also fined Earnest $25,000 and ordered her to undergo mental health and drug and alcohol counseling.
