PATERSON — A mother is behind bars after being accused of sexually exploiting her own 9-year-old daughter.

Crystal Quiroz, 29, of Paterson, is accused of taking sexually explicit pictures of the girl and posting them on the internet.

Quiroz is being held without bail under the state’s new bail reform rules. Prosecutors, who announced her arrest Wednesday evening, did not explain why the judge ordered her to be detained on Tuesday.

Quiroz was arrested May and charged with first-degree child endangerment, five counts of second-degree child endangerment, and a count of third-degree chid endangerment.

She faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty. A conviction would require her to register as a sex offender and be subjected to parole supervision for life.

New Jersey 101.5 did not know Wednesday whether Quiroz had an attorney.

Sergio Bichao is deputy digital editor at New Jersey 101.5.
