HART — A 33-year-old Shelby woman originally charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC) pleaded guilty in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Nov. 7, to using a computer to commit a crime in a bizarre case that involves pornographic photos, methamphetamine, a 4-year-old boy, a Colorado “acquaintance” and an upset husband.

Jennifer Wigren, of 50 Woodrow Rd., was released from the Oceana County Jail on a personal recognizance bond to await sentencing, which is scheduled for Dec. 19 at 9 a.m. The plea agreement calls for capping her up-front jail time at 90 days, which she has “already served in excess of that,” said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

Bizon stressed that the young boy was never harmed. “She never touched, molested, sexually exploited or abused the child,” Bizon said. “She did things that were very inappropriate. She was sending sexually explicit photos (of herself) in an attempt to buy drugs for herself.” The 4-year-old boy was in the background and foreground of the photos, the prosecutor said.

Wigren testified Monday that she was attempting to obtain meth Aug. 3 when she committed the offense.

After accepting her plea, Judge Anthony A. Monton amended Wigren’s bond. Guidelines in the case are 0-6 months, and the prosecution requested capping her jail time at the midpoint of the guidelines, which is 90 days.

Wigren allegedly sent pornographic photos of herself to “an acquaintance in Colorado,” Oceana County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Craig Mast said, and then her husband found the photos.

Deputies responded to Wigren’s home on a domestic assault call, Mast said. The officers were advised that Wigren and her husband had an altercation after he discovered the photos. The domestic assault charge against her husband was dropped. “She admitted that she lied about the domestic altercation,” Bizon said.
