BRISTOL, England, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- A former worker in a British day-care center has been sentenced to an indefinite period in prison for sending a Facebook buddy sexual pictures of children.

Vanessa George, 39, appeared in Crown Court in Bristol with Angela Allen, a former prostitute who received the same sentence, The Daily Telegraph reported. Mr. Justice John Royce said George must spend at least seven years in prison and Allen five.

Sentencing for the third member of the group, Colin Blanchard, was postponed.

George, who is married with two children, was working at Little Ted's, a day-care center in Plymouth, when she met

Allen from Nottingham and Blanchard from the Rochdale area on Facebook. The three admitted assaulting children and exchanging child pornography via cellphone and e-mail, although they did not meet in person.

Royce described the text messages the three exchanged as "chilling."

George kept her hand over her eyes as she stood in court.
