People say that there is no way a mother could do this...oh ya!

AP) An Illinois woman faces at least 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to doping her 6-year-old twin girls with cough syrup and taking nude pictures of them with her boyfriend.

The 30-year-old mother pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court in western Wisconsin to creating child pornography.

Her boyfriend, 37-year-old Roger Smith of Hollandale, pleaded guilty last month to sexually exploiting children. Both are due for sentencing in September.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb ordered the mother, who is pregnant, placed at a federal Bureau of Prisons medical center until sentencing.

The twins have lived with their father since the couple divorced in October. The pictures were taken in November and February at the woman's home in west-central Illinois.

The Associated Press generally does not identify people who may be victims of sexual assault and naming the mother could reveal the girls' identities.

Brook Bennett

To alll the children who have known this horror. To all those who survived it. Please know this that there is healing.
I am grieved at the thought of the great betrayal this child experienced.
All those around her that failed to see, that had blinders on so that they did not face reality. De'nile is not a river in Egypt. It is a very real force.
I am so proud of Brooke she had to have faught hard. Sweet baby heaven bound. Free from the predators grasp. Healed in an instant. 12 years old just a baby. My child is almost 11. These men are so sick. Sodomites to the core of evil! My concern is for the children that are still under the hand of them.
May these men be struck down and their breadth halted.

Songs of my heart
