A 46-year-old League City woman pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography in a Galveston federal court Thursday.

Tracey Lynn Bautista told the United States District Court Southern District of Texas she had knowingly received pictures containing child pornography via text message. Between Sept. 26 and Oct. 7, 2015, she exchanged several text messages with a man that contained the pornography.

Bautista is free on bond until an April 12 sentencing date. She faces up to 20 years in prison and will be registered as a sex offender, according to the court.
