Fmr. Webster Co. teacher pleads guilty to child porn charges

WEBSTER CO., Ky. (WFIE) - The former Webster County Middle School teacher accused of having child pornography on her phone has pleaded guilty.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Lucia Jenkins entered a guilty plea in federal court on two counts of distributing and receiving child porn.

Jenkins was arrested back in 2017 on child porn charges while authorities were conducting a death investigation.

During the investigation, troopers say a search warrant on a cellphone belonging to Jenkins revealed several photographs that depicted a minor in a sexual performance.

Jenkins has not yet been sentenced.
