OWNESBORO, KY (WAVE) - A woman facing
more than 1,000 counts of possessing images of child pornography must await the
results of a grand jury.
Kentucky State Police said Sarah Cox
worked in childcare and as a nanny in the Owensboro area.
Troopers are investigating to find out
whether any of those images found are of local children.
The 25-year-old was emotional in the
courtroom Monday, but the county attorney's office said they weren't surprised Cox
was not released with being a case of this magnitude.
Daviess County Assistant County Attorney John Burlew said, "In
situations where a defendant may pose a risk to the community often times the
prosecution will ask that person stay in jail pending the outcome of the
Michelle Cox, her mother said, "I
understand why Judge Payne did what he did and I feel that Sarah's safe where
she is because until people find out what happened there's going to be anger
and I understand that."
Officials said a grand jury will
convene within the next month to look at the case.
