Mother gets jail time for having kids snap nude photos of her

`A former Allentown woman who admitted that she ordered her 12-year old son and 13-year-old daughter to take pictures of her in seductive nude poses showed up in court today wearing jeans with “Booty” emblazoned on the left rear pocket and “Licious” on the right in what appeared to be rhinestones.

Northampton County Judge Stephen G. Baratta sent Julie Figueroa, 43, to state prison for nine months to four years for endangering the welfare of children. Figueroa’s adult daughter jumped to her feet as deputy sheriffs clamped handcuffs on Figueroa’s wrists. “Excuse me!” she shouted. “Can I say goodbye to my mother?”

The daughter, who did not give her name but earlier gave her age as 20, continued to sob and yell.

“Ma’am,” Baratta said sharply, “Be quiet.”

“This isn’t fair,” the daughter screamed.’
