HOUSTON A California woman accused of sending nude pictures to a Spring girl was in court overnight.

Investigators say 20-year-old Alyssia Perkins met the 12-year-old on Instagram in August and sent her sexually explicit messages and tried to get her to send nude photos back.

Perkins lives in San Diego. Authorities said she flew half across the country to meet with the girl on Friday morning.

Precinct 4 constables said Perkins reached out to the girl s mom stating she was not a bad person, and she just wanted to take care of her daughter.

Perkins is charged with two charges of online solicitation of a minor.
