Bad mom gets seven years

June 19, 2006

Albany-- An Albany woman who pleaded guilty for allowing her boyfriend to molest her children will spend the next seven years in prison.

Prosecutors say 28-year-old Victoria Rudeseal served her children up on a platter to 41-year-old Daniel Proctor, an HIV positive Albany man who was convicted last month of molesting Rudeseal's two young daughters. Proctor was sentenced to life in prison.

Rudeseal was sentenced twenty years to serve seven in prison and the remainder on parole.

"Judge Gray clearly sent a message to Ms. Rudeseal that we are not going to allow this type of parenting or lack of parenting to take place in Dougherty County," said Assistant District Attorney Chris Cohilas. "This was a woman who completely disregarded her responsibilities as a mother to three children and she basically just stood by and watched as a molester took advantage of her children."

Rudeseal is not allowed to have any contact with her children, who have been placed in foster care.
