A Connellsville woman pleaded not guilty Monday to federal child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury on July 9 indicted Lisa A. Renze, 48, on one count of producing child pornography and five counts of distributing child pornography, Assistant U.S. Attorney Carolyn Bloch said during Renze's initial appearance.

The indictment says Renze photographed a child performing sexually explicit conduct on Jan. 30, 2010. She then sent photos of the child five times between January and November to someone in Jeannette.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Cynthia Reed Eddy released Renze on a $50,000 unsecured bond with home monitoring and ordered that she refrain from contact with any children. Renze was escorted from the hearing by U.S. marshals. Her attorney, Ron Hayward, declined comment.

Renze faces a sentence of 15 to 30 years on the production charge and five to 20 years on each of the distribution charges. Each charge also carries a possible fine of up to $250,000 and probation of five years to life.
