DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) -- A Morgan County judge sentenced Lisa Marie Lesher, 41, to serve 723 years in prison for the sexual abuse charges involving her daughter and stepdaughter on Monday.
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 last month.
Testimony in the case revealed Lesher and her husband Michael sexually abused both her daughter and stepdaughter for several years at her home in Falkville. She was arrested in 2017.
According to Morgan County District Attorney Scott Anderson's Office, Lesher was sentenced to 99 years in each count of first-degree rape, sodomy and sexual torture. She received a 20-year sentence for second-degree sodomy, and a 10-year sentence for first-degree sexual abuse. The judge ordered each count to run consecutively, for a total of 723 years in the Department of Corrections.
Michael Lesher, who was also arrested in 2017, was tried last year and sentenced to 438 years in prison.
