EAGLE COUNTY, Colo. — A 23-year-old woman who was charged in connection with violent digital images of an infant child sent to a man in El Jebel pleaded guilty to a harassment charge, according to court records.

The Eagle County Sheriff's Office (ECSO) said the man, a relative of the infant, reported the images on Dec. 13, 2020 resulting in a multi-jurisdictional investigation that ultimately led to the suspect, Morgan Nicole Abrums, being taken into custody in Bogota, Colombia.

Abrums was returned to the U.S. on a warrant issued out of Eagle County, and ECSO said she was released on a $50,000 bond in Texas with the condition that she turn herself into authorities in Eagle County.

Abrums pleaded guilty in December 2021 to making threats over the phone as well as a protection order violation charge.

Other charges including posting private photos as harassment and stalking were dismissed.

Abrums was sentenced to five days in jail but was given credit for time served and had to pay fines for her two guilty pleas, according to court records.
