Meagan-Bowman-jpgSPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A Nixa woman was sentenced in federal court Monday for sexually exploiting two children to produce child pornography.

Meagan Nell Bowman, 26, pleaded guilty in December of 2014 to all four counts included in a federal indictment, which charged her with sexually exploiting a minor and receiving and distributing child pornography.

The indictment came after Bowman’s ex-husband found photographic evidence of her sexual abuse of a 3-year-old and 2-year-old in her email. Bowman used her cell phone to take photos of herself abusing the children after meeting two unknown men online from an ad on Craigslist.

Bowman was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison without parole. Bowman was also sentenced to a supervised release for the rest of her life after she’s served her sentence.
