A Reno woman has been sentenced to two life prison terms for allowing her boyfriend to have sex with two of her preteen daughters.
37-year-old Jackie Williams and her boyfriend, Michael Jones, both earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault with a child.
The children were 11 and 12 when the abuse was documented in 2004.
Washoe District Judge Steven Kosach sentenced Williams to the two life terms today.
He ruled she would be eligible for parole after serving 40 years in prison.
Jones will be sentenced in October.
Officials said the couple was arrested after a woman in Idaho gave police some journals that the couple had written with her oldest daughter outlining sexual abuse.
Williams pleaded guilty to demonstrating sex acts for her children and then supervising while Jones assaulted them.
