Holly Greiner, 31, from Maryland was sentenced Monday to five to 15 years in prison followed by 15 years of probation after she pleaded guilty to two counts both felonies of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, The York Dispatch reported.
After her arrest, Greiner confessed to police that she and her husband forced two children to perform sex acts on each other and with them.Her husband, 29-year-old Robert Phillip Greiner, who Holly previously testified against, faces up to 134 years in state prison with a minimum of 67 years for molesting the children.
Phillip was convicted in November of 11 counts including rape of a child, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, endangering the welfare of a child and corruption of minors
The 29-year-old was also found guilty of evidence tampering and witness intimidation charges that were filed after he made calls to his wife from prison pestering her about recanting her statements to police and pressuring her not to testify at his trial.
Both victims testified during last fall’s trial, which prosecutors contend helped them secure the conviction.The couple was arrested in 2015 after a 10-year-old boy told police in West Manheim Township, Pennsylvania, that he and a 5-year-old girl were sexually abused for a period of six months, court officials confirm.
