An Evansville woman was arrested in Henderson last year for allegedly showing young children pornographic movies and magazines.
Now 29-year-old Jessica Smith has pleaded guilty to committing sexual offenses against those children.

Smith was accused of hosting a party for a group of kids ages 6 -13.
During the get-together, investigators say the children were not only shown the movies, but were also involved in the making of sexually explicit material.
Police say that Smith would try to keep the children quiet about the acts by telling them she was a witch.

Court officials say Smith  agreed to a plea deal and will be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
She will also be required to register as a sex offender for the next 20 years.

We’re told a judge will have the final say at a hearing next month.
