Meri Jane Woods, 42, from Pennsylvania was arrested for putting child abuse films on a home computer in a failed bid to get her estranged husband arrested, state police said.
Woods sparked the investigation last August when she went to the authorities with her accusation.
Cops soon found that all of the lewd files on the computer were installed just three days before Woods went to the police.
The probe also found that Woods' husband, Matthew Woods, had moved out of the home the month before.
Woods was charged with a felony count of sexual abuse of children for having a computer with the graphic images on it.
She was also hit with 40 counts of lying about alleged abuse involving her husband.
