A Burnet, Texas woman has been sentenced to life in prison for sexually abusing and torturing her children in a sexual abuse and torture case that local authorities claim is one of the worst they’d ever seen.
49-year-old Misty Rae Hopkins was convicted earlier this week on numerous counts of aggravated sexual assault and indecency with a child.
Mrs. Hopkins and her late husband, a church pastor, sexually abused their four kids for years. Officials say the children were isolated in the home and kept out of school.
One daughter was abused starting at just seven years old, and it went on until she was 21, when she left the home with her siblings and notified the police.
