SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls woman has pleaded not guilty to receiving and distributing child pornography.

Forty-nine-year-old Sharon Dvorak was indicted by a federal grand jury earlier this month for distribution and receipt of child pornography in July 2018. She made an initial appearance in federal court Monday.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the maximum penalty for the federal charge is up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
