Dalhousie women sentenced to seven years for sex-related offenses involving own children

A Dalhousie woman has been sentenced to seven years in prison on sex-related charges involving her own children--all under the age of 16.

The 44 year old, who can't be named due to a publication ban, pleaded guilty to five charges in all.

In her pre-sentencing report, the woman says she, herself, was sexually abused between the ages of 5 and 16.

Her then boyfriend received a seven year prison sentence on related charges back in January.
