DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) -- A former Falkville woman was convicted of sexual abuse charges involving her daughter and stepdaughter Friday. Lisa Marie Lesher, 41, was originally arrested in 2017 in Caroll County, Georgia.

A jury convicted Lesher on two counts of first-degree rape, four counts of first-degree sodomy, one count of second-degree sodomy, one count of sexual torture, and one count of first-degree sexual abuse.

Testimony in the case revealed Lesher sexually abused both her daughter and stepdaughter for several years at her home in Falkville.

Morgan County District Attorney Scott Anderson called the case “one of the worst case of child sexual abuse I’ve ever seen.”

Lesher’s husband Michael, who was also arrested in 2017, was tried last year and sentenced to 438 years in prison.

Assistant District Attorney Courtney Schellack said she expects Lisa Marie Lesher to receive the maximum sentence possible: in excess of 700 years.
