A northwestern Indiana woman has pleaded guilty to molesting a 2-year-old boy and sending photographs to her boyfriend.

Twenty-three-year-old Tara Tryon would be sentenced to 10 years in prison if a Porter County judge accepts a plea agreement. Five counts would be dropped in return for her guilty plea on felony charges of child molestation and child exploitation. The Times reports (http://bit.ly/19GfJGD ) she also would have to register as a sex offender.

Tryon said she began molesting the toddler in 2010 while she was baby-sitting for him, and sent photographs to her then boyfriend, 27-year-old Ryan Schroeder.

A jury convicted Schroeder in December on 23 counts that include aiding child molestation and child exploitation. He was sentenced to 54 years in prison.

Schroeder says he intends to appeal.
