A Clymer woman has been charged with lying to authorities about how child pornography ended up on a home computer.

Meri Jane Woods, 42, of 326 Route 580, is charged with one felony count of child pornography and 40 misdemeanor charges of unsworn falsification to authorities after approaching the Southwest Computer Crime Task Force and reporting that her estranged husband had committed numerous “criminal and morally reprehensible acts.”

According to those at the task force, Woods said that her husband, Matthew Woods, had obtained the images.

But, law enforcement officials said, the images had all been downloaded to the computer between Aug. 11 and 14, which was after Matthew Woods was ordered out of the couple’s home by a protection-from-abuse order.

She will appear before Magisterial District Judge George Thachik in Clymer on Dec. 31 for a preliminary hearing.
