Former Baldwin City woman sentenced for child exploitation
A former Baldwin City woman was sentenced to 13 years in prison Monday for aggravated criminal sodomy and aggravated endangering a child, prosecutors said.
Aime Mitchell, 29, pleaded guilty on May 7 to the charges, a spokeswoman for Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson's office said. Felony charges of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and sexual exploitation of a child were dropped.
Mitchell had faced 25 years to life in prison, but District Judge Jack Murphy granted a motion for downward departure, said Cheryl Wright, Branson's spokeswoman. Mitchell will spend three years on parole after her prison sentence.
The case involved Mitchell's 3-year-old son and a 14-year-old girl.
A previous version of this story inaccurately stated Mitchell would spend three years on probation and listed incorrect charges.
