CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – A Charleston woman has received the maximum prison sentence for child sexual abuse crimes Friday morning.
Roseanna Thompson has been sentenced to 10-20 years each for three different counts of sexual abuse of a child.
Officials in Kanawha County Circuit Court Judge Tera Salango’s office say that these sentences will run consecutively, meaning Thompson will spend 30 to 60 years behind bars.
West Virginia State Troopers say Thompson and another man, Richard Smith II, had previously confessed to molesting Thompson’s granddaughter and recording it on video. Troopers
