A wealthy Texas woman who shares a $1.4 million home with her attorney husband faces charges that she collected and traded child pornography in what experts say is a rare case of a woman engaging in such activity.
Erika Susan Perdue has been undergoing addiction treatment since her April arrest on federal charges she accessed child pornography from the computer in her 4,000-square-foot home in the well-heeled Dallas enclave of University Park.
A four-count indictment accuses the 41-year-old of transporting, shipping, receiving and possessing child pornography. She could receive maximum prison sentences of 20 years for three of the counts and 10 years for the other.
Federal agents arrested Perdue after searching her home. An FBI affidavit says she admitted to trading files while her husband was at work.
