Sarah Adleta, an Oviedo, Fla., woman convicted of making child pornography with her husband and two kids, has been sentenced to 54 years in prison.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Adleta and her husband, Jonathan Adleta, "made having sex with their two children a part of their parenting plan."

Prosecutors say she continued the abuse even after they divorced.

Sarah Adleta pleaded guilty to two child-sex related charges back in May and was a witness against her ex-husband in his criminal trial, the paper reported.

She testified that Jonathan Adleta, a former Marine who had served in Afghanistan, made “daddy-daughter sex" a condition of their getting married.

She said she was willing to do anything to stay with him.

Although Adleta expressed remorse and claimed she'd been manipulated by her husband, her father, Leonard Lippy, made an emotional plea in front of a judge.

Not for leniency, but to make sure she was punished severely.

"Sarah, justice is needed," Lippy said, according to reports.

U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton Jr. sentenced to Adleta to 27 years per count, to be served consecutively rather than concurrently, for a total of 54.

The couple was arrested in March after the FBI learned that the 28-year-old woman had sent nude, sexually explicit photos of herself and a child to Dixon.

Adleta had been sending pics to Dixon for about a year.

The couple's daughter, four at the time of the arrest, had the developmental level of an 18-month old, was not toilet-trained, and displayed "sexualized" behaviors.

A neighbor revealed that Sarah Adleta had also offered to babysit her children in the past, but that something about her seemed wrong, or a little off.

"I feel so good I went with my gut and never let her watch my kids," Cheney Mills told a local television station after the Adletas were arrested in March.

Jonathan Adleta was also found guilty in September.
