As previously reported by Patch, Tessa Vanvlerah, 22, of the 200 block of Solon Drive in Ballwin pled guilty to charges of sexual assault following allegations that she and an assistant college professor violated the woman's infant daughter.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Vanvlerah admitted to repeatedly performing sex acts on her infant daughter and pled guilty to one count each of statutory rape, statutory sodomy and incest. Vanvlerlah's attorney had reportedly tried to get her probation because of a psychological disorder, according to stltoday.com.
The Post-Dispatch also reports that Vanvlerah and the college professor both also face federal charges of production of child pornography. The professor, Kenneth Kyle, 47, is reportedly already in custody on a California child sex abuse charge. The Post reports that the FBI found more than 100 child porn images were sent from Kyle's computer.
