Felony Indictment accuses Silver Lake woman of taking pornographic photographs of child
|Jordan L. McMurtry|
That wasn’t all.
A search of her phone revealed that McMurtry had taken obscene photographs of a child, District Attorney Donald O’Green said.
That led to a multi-count indictment against McMurtry, who appeared last week in Wyoming County Court.
McMurtry, 35, of Silver Lake entered a not guilty plea to five counts of using a child in a sexual performance, five counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child, two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, aggravated unlicensed operation, two counts of felony driving while impaired by drugs, two counts of criminal use of drug paraphernalia, license plate not affixed and unauthorized stickers.
The most serious charges are the first, which are class C felonies punishable by up to 15 years in state prison.
For McMurtry, it was the latest in a long history of arrests and indictments.
She has been arrested and charged with driving while high on drugs three times since 2014. She served a state prison term for a 2019 conviction for manufacturing meth and has been arrested numerous times for shoplifting and misdemeanor drug possession.
The 2019 meth conviction came after she and three others were charged with manufacturing meth in a stairwell and balcony in two residences in the village of Warsaw.
