    A Sterling, Virginia, woman was sentenced to one year in prison for child neglect after police said they found evidence of prostitution in her home.

    Loudoun County prosecutors said in one child welfare check at 44-year-old Nataliya Davis' home, an officer found a child sitting on the lap of an adult man who was not a relative, and there were roaches in multiple rooms of the house.

    A tenant in Davis' house told police he saw different men entering and leaving the home to meet with Davis for short periods.

    Investigators said Davis posted internet advertisements to solicit sex; surveillance showed Davis escorting men in and out of her residence.

    Authorities said after executing a search warrant at Davis' home, they found nude or partially nude digital photographs of Davis which matched photos from her Internet advertisements. Prosecutors said Davis' 8- and 9-year-old children could be seen in the background of photographs.

    While in jail awaiting trial, Davis made phone calls to a third party in which she confirmed she'd had her children take nude photographs of her for her advertisements, prosecutors said. 

    The judge in the case imposed an additional eight years suspended sentence with five years' supervised probation. Davis was ordered to only contact her children with permission from the Department of Family Services.
