Woman guilty in porn shared by turnpike worker

April 3, 2014

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A woman has pleaded guilty to federal charges that she enticed a child to commit sex acts that she used to create child pornography that was eventually shared with a former Pennsylvania Turnpike employee.

Forty-eight-year-old Lisa Renze, of Uniontown, pleaded guilty before a federal judge in Pittsburgh Wednesday and must return for sentencing Aug. 1.

Prosecutors say she shared explicit digital photos that she made from 2009 to 2011 with her friend and co-worker, 57-year-old John Longo, of Jeannette. He was indicted by a federal grand jury last month on related charges.

A turnpike commission spokesman says Longo is a former road maintenance employee who retired in May 2011. Renze’s status with the turnpike was not immediately clear.

She faces a minimum 15-year sentence.
