PHOENIX — A south Phoenix mother is facing charges for allegedly sending child pornography to an underage child.

Phoenix police report that on Thursday, they arrested 34-year-old Gloria Carminda Maya at her home near 19th Avenue and Buckeye Road.

Investigators say they received several tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children saying a social media account was collecting images of child pornography.

Police tracked the account to Maya. Upon her arrest, Maya reportedly admitted to receiving and distributing child porn through social media. Investigators say several videos of child sexual exploitation the suspect distributed was to an underage child known to the suspect.

Maya was arrested on seven counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. Her next court appearance is January 9.
