(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A mother gets more than 19 years in federal prison for helping her husband take pornographic pictures of her two young daughters. The stepfather got 27 years.
US District Court Judge Ted Stewart today sentenced Dee Dee Williams to the longest possible term for two counts of sexually exploiting children.
The judge says the mother not only failed to protect her children -- she helped her hubbie abuse her daughters, who were seven and nine years old when the photos were taken.
She's on her way to a federal women's prison in Tallahassee, Florida, where she has relatives.
Paul Williams, a former Air Force staff sergeant and a stepfather to the children, was locked away in July for 27 years.
