NY woman who abducted six children appeals 300-year sentence
Dec 31, NY: A New York woman has appealed her 300-year prison sentence for her role in sexually abusing six children, including two Amish girls she. They were all kidnapped by her and her boyfriend in 2014, news reports said.
Nicole Vaisey, 26, filed the appeal in federal court in Syracuse on Wednesday, a day after 40-year-old Stephen Howells filed an appeal of his 580-year sentence.
Both of them were sentenced in December 17, seven months after pleading guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to sexually exploit minors.
Federal prosecutors say the couple's victims were children ranging in age from 5 to 12. They included two Amish sisters, ages 7 and 12, who the couple abducted in August 2014 from a northern New York farm stand run by the girls' family.
