A West York woman sexually molested three boys who range in age from 5 to 14, and also sent pornographic photos of the 5-year-old to a man she met online, police allege.

Kathryn Lynne Eckenrode, 31, of 1210 W. Poplar St., remains in county prison on $200,000 bail, charged with multiple offenses.

Her preliminary hearing is set for July 25, according to court records.

West York Police allege the molestation incidents happened between May and June, according to charging documents.

Eckenrode's arrest affidavit alleges she had sex with two 14-year-old boys at different times.

The affidavit states she also had sex with a third 14-year-old boy while on vacation in Delaware, but she is not charged in York County with that offense.

Alleged confession: During a June 27 police interview, Eckenrode admitted to having sex with two of the boys at two West York addresses, according to the affidavit.

The next day, she told police she inappropriately touched a 5-year-old boy, took photos of that assault and sent them to a man she knows only by a first name, who she thinks lives somewhere near Syracuse, N.Y., the affidavit alleges.

Investigators seized her cellphone, which contained photos of the 5-year-old's molestation, according to police.

Eckenrode is charged with 19 offenses, including counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, statutory sexual assault, indecent assault, corruption of minors, sexual abuse of children, disseminating child pornography and possession of child pornography.

She has no attorney of record.
