RACINE — A Racine woman is facing charges after a video was found on her cell phone showing her and a teenage boy reportedly engaged in sex.

Amanda M. Eckblad, 22, of the 2100 block of Clarence Avenue, is charged with a felony count of possession of child pornography and a misdemeanor count of sexual intercourse with a child.

In May, Eckblad was arrested for a felony count of straw purchase of a firearm, in which a person buys a firearm for a person who is legally unable to obtain one themselves. Her cell phone was confiscated at the time of her arrest.

An investigator had been looking into allegations that Eckblad was having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy. Eckblad’s phone was searched and a video was found showing Eckblad and the teen having sex.

During Eckblad’s initial appearance on Thursday, her cash bond was set at $25,000, online records show. She remained in custody as of Thursday afternoon.

A preliminary hearing is set for July 12 at the Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave.
