CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman convicted of using her teenage daughter to produce child pornography has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.
The 43-year-old Manchester lawyer didn't testify at her trial but said at Thursday's sentencing her world crashed and her life fell apart after her husband left her.
The woman's two-day trial featured a series of sexually explicit videos prosecutors say she made of her 14-year-old daughter.
She was convicted in January of transporting her daughter across state lines to produce child porn, possessing child porn and sexually exploiting her daughter to produce child porn. She had faced up to 100 years in prison at her sentencing hearing.
