Wisconsin mother sentenced 40 years for sexually assaulting her children

APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- A Fox Valley mother will spend decades behind bars for sexually assaulting her two young children and making explicit videos.

The 34-year-old Grand Chute woman was sentenced Monday in Outagamie County Circuit Court to 40 years in prison to be followed by 25 years of extended supervision.

WLUK-TV reports Judge Gregory Gill told the mother her children’s “pain and suffering will go on in perpetuity” and tragically it was caused by the one who was empowered to be their caretaker.

A criminal complaint says the woman sexually assaulted her 7-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter during the course of several months and posted sexually explicit images and videos online.

The Associated Press is not naming the woman to protect the identity of the victims.
