Fox 10 Phoenix reports that a woman living in New River, Arizona was arrested last Sunday for molesting two children (her own, some sources say) and selling videos of the acts online.

The woman, 28-year-old mother Keri Harwood, is accused of molesting two young children, ages three and six, multiple times, including in the bathroom of her own home while her husband was was at work.

Harwood reportedly told police that she was molesting the children at the behest of a man she had met online. The man paid her to send him these videos via Snapchat. A witness reported seeing evidence of PayPal payments to the woman in the amount of $115, $101, and $50, believed to be the payments for the videos, writes the Daily News.

Harwood, who works at a Phoenix car dealership, says that she met the man online when she was struggling for money and that he first paid her to masturbate on Snapchat live-streams for him. He then reportedly convinced her to perform sex acts on children and send them to him.

Harwood told police that she then sent the man five or six videos of her performing sexual acts on the two children.
