Her attorney Michael Langford said outside court that Carbo is a hardworking mother of three who looks forward to responding to the allegations.

Carbo was re-arrested last week, and the number of charges she faced tripled as state prosecutors took over a widening case.

Carbo is jailed in Salt Lake County on $95,000 bond. She pleaded not guilty to the first set of charges after her December arrest, but she hasn't entered a plea yet on the new charges.
