A 21-year-old Baltimore woman pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to creating child pornography by videotaping sex acts she and her boyfriend performed on a girl, the Maryland U.S. attorney's office said.

Tiffany Bolner, 21, faces a minimum sentence of 15 years for sexually abusing a minor she befriended in 2009. The girl would spend the night — and later, weekends — at the home that Bolner shared with co-defendant Jesse Aaron Davison, according to the statement of facts in her plea agreement.

Davison has been charged with production and possession of child pornography and related charges, and he is scheduled to face trial on April 18.

According to prosecutors, between February 2010 and May 2010, Bolner and Davison sexually abused the child, first by having sex in front of her, then progressing to the couple performing sex acts on the child and having her perform sex acts on them. The two used a Blackberry smart phone to take videos and photographs of the abuse, which police later recovered, the attorney's office said.

Davison told the girl that he would harm Bolner if she told anyone, according to prosecutors.

Bolner's sentencing is scheduled for May 12.
