A northern Idaho woman faces an April court hearing, where she will face sentencing for sending nude photos of herself to teenage boys. Miranda DeJesus, 21, pleaded guilty in a Shoshone County courthouse Feb. 8 to charges of enticing a child.

Prosecutors said that DeJesus would sent texts to one boy, asking, "Can you help me move?" Soon thereafter, DeJesus admitted to sending texts that asked, "have you ever had sex before?" and, "Do you wonder what it feels like?"

A sibling of one of the victims said he discovered two naked photos of DeJesus on his brother's smartphone. Now that DeJesus is behind bars, KHQ-TV reports one victim's family wants to let the neighborhood know about the incident and how family members "have a big role in prevention."

"We've got to be checking their phones," said the mother of one of the victims. "We've got to teach them the skills necessary to be equipped to deal with things like this."
