Terrie Sena, 43, was handed a life sentence on Thursday for her part in a Las Vegas pedophile ring which also involved her ex-husband Christopher Sena and his new wife, Deborah Sena.

Sena cried in court as she was sentenced. She will be eligible for parole in ten years. 

Christopher Sena, the man in the ring, who allegedly forced family members to have sex with each other, is due back in court on July 13. He faces 23 charges, including incest, bestiality and felony child abuse.

Christopher Sena has been accused of sexually abusing his children and filming them in sickening acts for more than ten years. Many of the charges carry a sentence up to life in prison.

Deborah Sena is also due in court but a date has not been scheduled.  

Terrie Sena had pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault as part of a plea deal in February.

The three were arrested last year in connection with the abuse of at least eight children over 12 years in their Las Vegas trailer-park home. 

One victim said in a letter to a Vegas media outlet that the mothers should not face jail because they were also subjected to years of torture and sexual abuse.

The victim said the women, like the child victims, lived in constant fear and were monitored 24/7 by Christoper Sena, under threats of violence. 

The letter read: "Christopher would ask them if (Deborah or Terrie Sena) would like to take the punishment instead of us. And they would take those beatings for us.  

Our father is in jail, where he belongs. And the absence of our mothers continues to victimize us kids."

Christopher Sena was arrested last September as part of a SWAT team operation and recording equipment seized from the home. Recordings were found of the adults carryingsexual acts with the children.

Authorities allegedly found footage of Deborah Sena, who left her husband last August and reported the abuse, involved in sexual acts with the family dog.

She claimed her husband told her she would do what he wanted if she loved him.

Terrie and Christopher Sena had three sons and a daughter together before splitting in 1997. 

But after they split, Terrie continued to live with her ex and their children, even when he took a new wife, Deborah.

At least eight minors were involved and some encounters were filmed as part of a child porn operation, police said. 

One victim told authorities that when Sena started abusing her as a child, the two women were not aware of it, but when she was 17, she was forced to engage in sexual activity with them.

That victim started to strike her stomach with a piece of wood, fearful that she would fall pregnant with Sena's child.

Some of the victims said they were abused for years; one boy said the abuse started when he was three years old and continued until he was a teenager.

Another woman said she was abused two or three times a week by Sena for more than a decade.

Another female victim, who is now an adult, said she saw Christopher Sena take 'a number of her friends' into his office, police said. 

To stop his victims from speaking out about the abuse, Sena told at least two of them that he would kill them or break their legs if they spoke out, they told police.

Police described the abuse as 'one of the most horrific sex rings in memory'.

According to investigators Terrie Sena, told police she was attracted to young male and female teens, and said it was 'really enjoyable' when one of the boys started to look like Christopher Sena.

But she told authorities that she later felt 'ashamed' and 'dirty'.
