Montana woman gets 15 years for video recording child rape
GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for making a video recording a 29-year-old man raping a 12-year-old girl.
The Great Falls Tribune reports 43-year-old Kimberly Ann Cooke pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual abuse of children as part of a plea agreement.
She was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in the Montana Women's Prison with five years suspended.
District Judge John Kutzman told Cooke she "failed morally in a way that ordinary words can't describe."
Cooke's co-defendant, Joshua David Rowland, has pleaded guilty to sexual intercourse without consent and sexual abuse of children as part of a plea agreement. Investigators found five videos of sex acts with the girl.
Rowland's sentencing date has not been set.
