An Antioch woman working as a nanny was charged Tuesday with multiple counts of child pornography involving the child she was caring for. 

The Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office said 28-year-old Michelle Nicole Hidalgo was arrested on September 22 after investigators with the county's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant at her home.

Hidalgo remained in custody Tuesday on $700,000 bail. Her first court appearance was scheduled for Wednesday.
