A Kentucky woman has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for incest, sodomy and sexual abuse involving her young son. She will also have to file as a sex offender when she gets out.
The 40 year old woman confessed to having sex with her son from the time he was four til he was seven. She admitted to having oral sex with the boy along with other inappropriate sexual contact.
The Louisville resident, whom the Daily Mail is not naming due to the nature of the crimes, was handed her sentence on Tuesday after accepting a plea deal.
Jefferson Circuit County Judge Olu Stevens also ordered the mother to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
The 40-year-old woman was arrested in October 2015 on five counts of first-degree sexual abuse, two counts of sodomy and one count of incest after an investigation by the Louisville Metro Police Department’s Crimes Against Children’s Unit.
According to an arrest report cited by the station WAVE3, the mother, then 38 years old, admitted to performing oral sex on the boy and engaging in other inappropriate activities with the child between September 2012 and September 2015.
She has been out on bond since 2015 but will now have to report to prison as soon as a date is set.
Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear said:
‘It’s unimaginable the suffering this victim endured and will endure. This court action held accountable the victim’s abuser and brought some justice for the crimes against the victim.’
