WINNEBAGO COUNTY, Ill. (WIFR) -- A woman was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual assault of a child in Roscoe.

Gina M. Colwell, 41, plead guilty to charges of predatory criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual assault.

Roscoe Police began investigating several complaints linked to Colwell in February 2016.

Investigators say three children under the age of 13 were abused. Colwell sexually assaulted one child multiple times from 2014 to 2016 until it was reported to police, according to investigators.

Colwell is also subject to three years of supervised release, which will also serve a consecutive sentence of sex offender probation for four years once she is released from prison.
