Babysitter Laura Jean Shoulders has been sentenced to 27 years in jail for producing child pornography. The sitter sent homemade videos of herself sexually abusing her one-year-old charge to a man she had met on the internet.

Shoulders, 47, sent videos of herself performing sexual acts on the one-year-old baby she was nannying in Burns Flat, Oklahoma to a man she had met on Craigslist personals, the Daily Mail reports. According to court records, the two met online and began corresponding in 2012, sending each other explicit texts and photographs.

When the conversation turned to child porn, Shoulders offered to send the man of videos of herself abusing the child she was babysitting, according to the local Fox News station.

The iPhone videos were then distributed around the internet.

Shoulders pleaded guilt to producing child pornography in February 2013. U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats said she will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.

She was sentenced to 27 years in federal prison without the possibility of parole.
