Attleboro - A US woman who says she was duped into posing her 10-year-old daughter nude over a webcam for a man she thought was a professional photographer has been jailed.

The 41-year-old mother pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a charge of misdemeanour assault and battery under a plea deal. The charge was reduced from felony indecent assault and battery. A charge of posing a child in the nude was dropped.

The Sun Chronicle reports that the woman was sentenced to serve three months of a maximum 2 ½-year term.

The mother's name wasn't released to protect her daughter's identity.

The woman says she was looking for modelling work when an Iowa man persuaded her to pose the girl naked.

That man is facing child exploitation charges.

    How is it possible to be DUPED into posing and allowing your 10-y-o to be photographed or filmed naked? What POSSIBLE reason could she have been given that would make such a thing OK? Some people are just not fit to be parents.

    Oh my gosh. How stupid is this "mom"? Her daughter is 10 years old. Why the heck would she happily and willingly allow a photographer over a webcam (who guaranteed she didnt even know) take photos of her daughter naked. She should be given a harsher sentence and have that child taken away from her. What an awful mom.

    Ireland 's worst air disaster occurred early this morning when a small two-seater Cessna plane crashed into a cemetery. Irish search and rescue workers have recovered 2826 bodies so far and expect that number to climb as digging continues into the night.
