A northern Alberta woman is facing numerous sex charges including three counts of sexual assault, three counts of sexual exploitation and possessing child pornography.

The 37-year-old woman from Red Earth Creek, about 420 kilometres north of Edmonton, is also charged with luring a child.

The woman was arrested Sunday and later released after someone called police Saturday.

Police are not releasing further details to protect the child's privacy.

The woman is scheduled to appear in court March 19.
