University Park Woman Admits She Collected And Traded Child Pornography

Sep 10, 2013

A University Park woman pleaded guilty this morning to collecting child pornography.

Erika Susan Perdue could face 14 years in federal prison, followed by a lifetime of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña’s office announced. Perdue could also have to pay a $250,000 fine. She will be sentenced in January, when a judge will consider a plea deal.

Perdue, 42, has been in custody since June 2012.

In January 2012, an FBI special agent and an FBI officer with Plano police found that Perdue was logged onto a file-sharing computer program. They discovered that several of Perdue’s files included child pornography.

In April 2012, Perdue admitted that she traded the pornography while her husband was at work.

WFAA-TV reported last year that Perdue collected so much child pornography that she had trouble keeping track of it.
