FOX NEWS - An Indiana woman on Tuesday admitted to charges that she allowed her boyfriend to molest her daughter, leading to the then-10-year-old’s pregnancy.
The 33-year-old woman, of Marion, pleaded guilty to charges of neglect, aiding child molesting and assisting a criminal. She avoided a trial by accepting a sentence of 20 years in prison and five years of probation.
"We were certainly ready to go to trial in a few weeks, but the emotional and psychological toll would have been significantly more (for this trial) than the Thrash trial," Deputy Grant County Prosecutor Lisa Glancy said.
The woman's boyfriend, 34-year-old Nicholas Deon Thrash, was convicted of 10 counts of child molesting and sentenced last week to 160 years in prison. The victim, who was not named, testified Thrash had molested her at least 15 times.
