A sadistic mother in Britain will spend 10 years in prison after a court convicted her of encouraging her boyfriend to systematically rape her three young daughters. The 65-year-old woman instructed her daughters to wear provocative underwear, gave them alcohol, and then drove the girls, who were all under the age of 16, to her partner's home so he could rape them, according to court testimony. She pleaded guilty this week to 25 charges involving the aiding and abetting of child rape.

The woman said the assaults would help the "sexual education" of the victims, and she personally observed the horrific deeds to experience a sexual thrill, reports the Daily Mail. The series of crimes took place over a seven-year period in the 1970s and 80s in Somerset, England, and were only revealed in 2010 when one of the victims alerted the authorities after hearing the rapist had died. (In another shocking rape case, the confessed perpetrator claims he was asleep during the act.)
