Her 32-year-old boyfriend, who was already a registered sex offender prior to the case, was sentenced to two life terms in prison by the same judge in November.

Police said the rapes happened while Carpenter held down her daughter as Kirksey raped the child, WTRF reported.

It’s unclear how many times the child was raped or when the sexual abuse against the girl began.

‘She reported it to a relative that mom’s boyfriend had been abusing her for the last two weeks,’ Belmont County Prosecutor Dan Dry told WTRF in July.

‘If a 12-year-old girl cannot trust her mother to love and protect her, who in this world can she ever trust? She certainly wouldn’t expect her mother to be assisting in the rape,’ Fregiato said during Carpenter’s sentencing.

Judge Fregiato called the case 'a crime against nature' as he sentenced her to life in prison Wednesday
