WALLINGFORD — A Wallingford woman was arrested by federal agents Thursday and charged with producing, distributing and possessing child pornography.

A federal criminal complaint alleges that Angela D. Martin, 29, sexually abused a female child, recorded a video of the abuse with her cell phone, and then emailed the video to a person in California. The girl was about 3 years old.

The government also alleges that Martin, who is also known as Angela Haussmann, possesed and distributed child pornography that she received from others in August and September.

Martin was convicted of second-degree sexual assault of a minor in Superior Court in Waterbury in December 2006 and served a 30-month prison sentence. She is a registered sex offender.

During an appearance Friday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Joan G. Margolis in New Haven Martin was ordered detained.
