A 40-year-old Kennewick woman pleaded innocent to accusations that she participated in a three-hour photo shoot with a young teen girl who allegedly was told to pose seductively in lingerie.
Suzette Angela Razzolini made her first appearance Thursday in Benton County Superior Court, where she is charged with sexual exploitation of a minor. Her trial is Sept. 10.
Razzolini was charged with the crime after the video of the photo shoot was found by police during a child molestation investigation involving her husband.
Daniel Paul Devorkin, 49, since has pleaded guilty to attempted child molestation and sexual exploitation of a minor involving the same girl.

In the video, Razzolini can be seen posing with the girl and an older teen, while also instructing them what to wear and how to model, court documents said.
Devorkin took pictures and shot the video, which also shows the couple providing alcohol to the younger girl and drinking it with her, documents said.
The girl became intoxicated and allegedly changed her lingerie in front of the couple while the camera was rolling. Prosecutors allege that Razzolini not only knew the photo shoot was being recorded, but at times also appeared naked or wearing lingerie while posing seductively with the teens, court documents said.
The older teen is not included in the charge because she no longer is considered a minor.
