A woman and her boyfriend has been sent to jail for sexually abusing her children.
The 32-year-old mother, Bobbi Sue Pack of Wheelersburg, was arrested, charged and sentenced to 10 years in prison as part of a plea agreement in which she pleaded guilty to two counts of rape.
Her boyfriend, Juan Carlos Sanchez, 45, on his part, was sentenced to 25 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and one count of endangering a child.
The couple was accused of tying the woman's children to their beds for a week at a time, beaten and raped with the children only freed to do the homework for their Ohio Virtual Academy, an online school.
Pack and Sanchez admitted to tying up the children as punishment for stealing food, but deputies said that they found locks on the refrigerator and kitchen cupboards in the family's home.
The woman’s daughters were 9 and 11 years old at the time, and her son was 8 years old. The children suffered abuse for 2 years before the 11-year-old girl alerted her teacher via email, and police were called.
