LOS ANGELES (AP) - A California woman who as a child was raped repeatedly by her father, and later gave birth to three of his children, was given a light sentence on burglary charges because of her horrific childhood.

Authorities say 33-year-old Tatiana Thibes faced more than 12 years in prison for helping gang members burglarize homes in Los Angeles.

But she is expected to leave jail within days after a Los Angeles County judge sentenced her Friday to two years and eight months in custody.

The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday (http://lat.ms/IL8Tcl ) that she was given credit for time she spent behind bars awaiting trial and sentencing, clearing the way for her release.

The challenge for authorities was to determine an appropriate sentence for someone who also endured a hellish childhood.
