New River woman accused of molesting kids now pleads guilty

PHOENIX (AP) - A New River woman accused of molesting two young children and selling videos of the acts online has changed her plea to guilty in the case.

29-year-old Keri Harwood was arrested last August on suspicion of five counts each of child molestation and sexual exploitation of a minor and originally pleaded not guilty.

She pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of attempted sexual conduct with a minor.

Harwood now is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 22.

Authorities began investigating after receiving a tip from a friend of Harwood who discovered the videos after she gave him access to her email account.

New River is a rural community 33 miles (53 kilometers) north of Phoenix.
