Porter County Woman Pleads Guilty To Molestation
A 23-year-old Porter County woman pleaded guilty on Friday to molesting a 2-year-old boy and sending photographs to her boyfriend.
Tara Tryon would be sentenced to 10 years in prison, if a Porter County judge accepts a plea agreement. Five counts would be dropped in return for her guilty plea on felony charges of child molestation and child exploitation. Tryon would also have to register as a sex offender.
Tryon said she began molesting the toddler in 2010 while she was baby-sitting for him, and sent photographs to her then boyfriend, 27-year-old Ryan Schroeder. A jury convicted Schroeder in December on 23 counts that include aiding child molestation and child exploitation. He was sentenced to 54 years in prison. Schroeder says he intends to appeal.
