Woman sentenced to probation in babysitter sex abuse case

Posted: Updated:

A woman whose boyfriend sexually abused children he was babysitting has pleaded guilty to criminal mistreatment involving the victims.

Desiree Chapman pleaded guilty in court Wednesday.

She was arrested along with William Gaskin after detectives said an adult walked in on abuse happening to a 3-year-old girl in April 2011.

He was found guilty in May on charges including sex abuse in that case, as well as a separate case involving a 5-year-old girl.

Gaskin was sentenced to more than 56 years in prison.

Chapman was sentenced Wednesday to three years probation and she must register as a sex offender. She must also pay restitution to the victims.

If she violates her probation at any point, she will likely face more than four years behind bars.
