Woman Let Kids Be Molested by Convicted Killer

NBCSanDiego

A Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison for taking two children to a state prison so they could be molested by a convicted killer.

Forty-two-year-old Rebecca Ann Butler of Danville was sentenced Friday in Wilkes-Barre.

Prosecutors say Butler brought the girls to the State Correctional Institution at Retreat for several years, starting when they were 4 and 7 years old, to visit 47-year-old Andre VanCliff. He is serving a life sentence.

Butler was convicted of two counts each of child endangerment and conspiracy to allow indecent assault of a child.
 
Luzerne County Judge Michael Vough  told Butler it was the "worst behavior'' from a mother he'd seen.

Butler admits putting the kids at risk but denies conspiring with VanCliff to have him molest them.
