Farmington woman charged with making, sharing child porn

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a discovery from a fatal 2012 motorcycle crash in Arizona is what led to a Farmington woman’s arrest on child pornography charges.

The Daily Times in Farmington reports (http://bit.ly/1AD3UVh) that the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday booked 28-year-old Tristalyn Valencia on multiple counts including criminal sexual contact of a minor and sexual exploitation of children.

Sheriff’s Lt. Kyle Lincoln says Valencia allegedly used a young relative to create pornography, which she then distributed.

Lincoln says that pornographic pictures of the child were on the phone of 22-year-old Tyler Crocfer, of Farmington.

Investigators found them while looking into the Phoenix crash that killed Crocfer.

Authorities recently identified the child and contacted the parents, leading to Valencia’s arrest.

It was not known if Valencia had an attorney.
