HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced an intellectually disabled Gary woman to more than 24 years in prison for selling her two young daughters for producing child pornography.

The 25-year-old woman pleaded guilty in January to one count of selling a child for child pornography and two counts of permitting a child to take part in child pornography. She was sentenced Wednesday.

The (Munster) Times and the Post-Tribune report prosecutors sought a sentence under the 30-year mandatory minimum because of her cooperation.

The Associated Press is not identifying the woman because it would indirectly identify her daughters. It does not identify victims of child abuse.

The woman’s attorney says she has an IQ of 55.

The man who paid for the girls was sentenced to life in prison plus 85 years.
