[Previous 10/24/14 post]
Her plea came in satisfaction of a four-count indictment filed against her, an indictment that included allegations that Castrechino videotaped the sexual assaults against the child.Formal sentencing is scheduled for November 20.
Assistant District Attorney Vincent Hemming and defense attorney Adam Koch worked out a quick deal in the case against Castrechino.[…]
The indictment charged Castrechino with two counts of predatory sexual assault against a child, a class A felony punishable by 25 years to life in prison, same as a murder conviction.
Hemming said the plea, however, ensures that Castrechino will be in prison for 25 years and on post-release supervision for another 25 years. An order of protection bars her from contact with the child for 58 years.
