ABQ woman admits to producing child porn

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to a production of child pornography in a plea agreement that recommends an 18-year prison term plus five years of supervised release.

Danielle Glotfelty, 32, will also be required to register as a sex offender, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a news release.

She was charged in a criminal complaint filed June 6, 2017, with producing child pornography in April 2014 in Bernalillo County.

Albuquerque police investigated Danielle Glotfelty’s co-defendant Christopher Glotfelty, 36, also of Albuquerque, after receiving evidence supporting allegations Christopher Glotfelty produced child porn of himself engaging in sexual activity with two minors, according to the release.

An indictment charged both with producing child pornography, and charged Christopher Glotfelty with producing child porn and possessing child porn on two thumb drives and a memory stick within a camera.

On Tuesday, Danielle Glotfelty, in pleading guilty to one count of producing child pornography, admitted she aided and abetted Christopher Glotfelty in producing child porn involving a 7-year-old child.

Her plea deal also recommends she serve her federal sentence concurrently with any prison sentence imposed in the state case in which she is being prosecuted.

Christopher Glotfelty in July pleaded guilty to one count of producing child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography. He is expected to be sentenced to 25 years in prison, plus 15 years of supervised release. He also be required to register as a sex offender.

Both have been in federal custody since their arrests and will remain detained pending their sentencing hearing, which has yet to be scheduled, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The case was investigated by the FBI and Albuquerque police. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathon M. Gerson is prosecuting the case as part of Project Safe Childhood.
