CALICO ROCK, AR (KAIT) -

A woman arrested on child sex crimes faces more charges after investigators say they found child pornography on her computer.

In October 2014 Izard County sheriff's deputies arrested Beth Ann Dickerson, 31, of Calico Rock and charged her with sexual indecency with a child, sexual assault, and rape.

On Friday, Jan. 16, investigators charged her with distributing, possessing or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child; and an additional charge of sexual assault.

According to Sheriff Tate Lawrence, the additional charges stem from forensic analysis of her computer by the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory.

The computer was seized at the time of Dickerson's arrest in October.

Dickerson's bond was increased to $510,000. She remains in the Izard County Detention Facility at this time.
