A Brazoria County woman pleaded guilty Wednesday in Galveston's federal court to conspiracy and sex trafficking of children, according to a spokeswoman with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Angela Marks, 24, was charged with nine others as part of a sex trafficking ring that used websites to advertise girls as young as 16 years old for sex, officials said.

Marks directed three girls to pose for pictures in February 2017, officials said.

Marks would then communicate with customers and monitor the girls during prostitution dates, officials said.

Marks faces up to life in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000 for her role in the ring, officials said.

Judge George Hanks set sentencing for May 9 in the U.S. District Court Southern District of Texas in Galveston, officials said.
