Mother to trial in sexual abuse casePOSTED: 09/27/13 2:54 PM
St. Maarten– The 38-year-old mother of two boys who stood trial in March for sexually abusing their little sisters will appear in court on October 10. The woman is charged as an accomplice in the sexual abuse case.
The boys, aged 20 and 19 faced prison sentences of 40 and 36 months respectively, but the court acquitted them of rape charges for lack of legal and convincing evidence. The oldest boy was sentenced to 15 month for sexually assaulting and indecently touching his sisters – one of them just 3 years old. The younger brother was acquitted of all charges.
The mother has been charged as an accomplice in the case because she knew what was going on but did nothing to stop it.
