A former Boston nanny charged pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges involving child pornography.

During a change of plea hearing in Suffolk Superior Court, Lak pleaded guilty to all charges, and she was sentenced to three years in prison, followed by a supervised release.

Court documents show that investigators found Lak had discussed sex acts to perform on a baby in her chats. At the time of the charges, the alleged victims were 5- and 3-year-old girls, the documents said.

Investigators seized a laptop and cellphone in connection to the case. They say investigators found seven videos and photos in Kik, a messaging app.

Investigators reached out to parents and caretakers who may have had contact with Lak via the site Care.com.

Officials previously said Lak secured employment as a nanny and caregiver through the site SitterCity.com.
