Erika Perdue, a wealthy Dallas housewife, pleaded guilty this week to downloading and distributing child pornography while her lawyer husband was at work.

By accepting a plea bargain, Perdue faces 14 years in federal prison, a lifetime of probation and a maximum fine of $250,000, noted the Dallas Morning News.

She will be sentenced on January 13, 2014, but remains in jail.

The 42-year-old socialite reportedly had numerous videos and photos of children, including toddlers, having sex with adults stored on her computers.

Perdue was arrested in April 2012 after she unknowingly traded some child porn with an undercover cop.

According to court documents, Perdue admitted to law enforcement that she had been distributing child porn since 1999, reported the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Perdue says she was trading child porn on the day that police officers raided her $1.4 million mansion.

Ironically, her car has a vanity license plate that reads "MY SYN."
