Her defense attorney, Eleanor Knowles, had tried claiming Annaâ€™s IQ was extremely low and that she had a history of trauma and untreated mental illness. She further argued for her client that sending her to prison would delay treatment for her condition.
During Annaâ€™s sentencing hearing Wednesday, one of the victimsâ€™ mothers didnâ€™t hold back â€“ as you might imagine.
In addition to her prison term, she will be required to register as a sex offender.
Ms. Knowles read a letter written by her client in which Anna apologized to the court and her family. She promised to seek counseling behind bars.
