Shoemake was arrested in August 2010.

Investigators found sexually explicit pictures of Shoemake and two kids, both under the age of 10 at the time.

Lowndes County deputies were alerted after Shoemake’s boyfriend found the images and alerted the children’s father.

The father then called the sheriff’s department.

Deputies also worked with federal prosecutors because Shoemake was sending the pictures to a man out-of-state that she met online.
