By Christian Jennings - bio | email MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - The last of four family members accused of sexually abusing several child relatives in 2006 pleaded guilty this week in Colquitt County.
39-year-old Carol Beaver pleaded guilty to two counts of cruelty to children for letting two child relatives go to her brother's house when she knew he was having sex with them.
In September of 2006, she was indicted on three counts of child molestation charges that allege she performed oral sex on a 6-year-old relative and had sex with another child.
Those charges were dropped as part of the plea agreement. She was sentenced to serve 20 years in prison.
Her brother Gary Arms and his wife Angela Arms and Russell Fronteras all pleaded guilty to child molestation charges last year.
Gary Arms will spend 10 years in prision, Angela Arms 5 years and Fronteras 6 years.
