KS~Barbara Porter sentenced for covering up husband's sex abuse of daughter
This one must have totally gotten by me and I watch the Kansas City area closely due to the Mohler trial. Their FBI office has the best press release system.
Overland Park Woman Sentenced to Five Years for Covering Up Daughter's Sexual Abuse
May 3, 2011
".....Barbara Porter, 45, Overland Park, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction of justice. Porter's husband, Patrick Porter, pleaded guilty to one count of producing child pornography. In his plea, he admitted investigators found photographs he had taken of his minor stepdaughter in sexually explicit poses. When investigators served a search warrant in June 2010 at the Porters' home, Porter's stepdaughter was placed in protective custody with the state of Kansas. Authorities placed Porter's stepdaughter with her maternal grandmother. Barbara Porter helped Patrick Porter remove his stepdaughter from protective custody. Patrick Porter then fled Kansas with his stepdaughter, causing an Amber alert to be issued. Patrick Porter and his stepdaughter later were found in California, where he was arrested.
Co-defendant Patrick Porter was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison."

Five Years is not enough, but at least she got something. Too many wives and girlfriends are walking free from those crimes. It is a step in the right direction, imo.“Every day that they don’t find something is good for me.“ Billie Dunn
