EDEN, N.C. – A judge handed down a new sentence for a woman who pleaded guilty to selling her underage daughters for sex. One of the admitted johns was also re-sentenced, after both of their previous sentences were vacated due to the former district attorney’s handling of the cases.
WFMY News 2 is not naming the woman convicted in an effort to protect the identity of her girls.
Back in 2016, the mother pleaded guilty to dozens of charges related to the prostitution ring involving her daughters. At the time, the judge said this was the most disturbing case he's heard in all of his years on the bench and sentenced her to 20 years in prison.
This week, the mother was re-sentenced to 22 years minus the time she has already served since May 31, 2016 – adding two years to her jail time.
