Texas woman heading to federal prison for abusing her own son

Posted: Updated:

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- A San Antonio woman is headed to federal prison for 28 years after pleading guilty to recording herself having sex with her 3-year-old son and sending the video to a former boyfriend.

Kimberly Epperson's sentence Friday came after the 25-year-old agreed to a plea deal that set her punishment between 15 and 30 years for one count of production of child pornography.

Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery told Epperson she'd made a "sacrificial lamb" of her son who would have a lifetime of his own to remember the abuses.

Prosecutors say Epperson and ex-boyfriend Wade Perkins had "used" the boy multiple times over weeks. Perkins was sentenced in October to 30 years. The San Antonio Express-News reports Epperson's attorney said she'd been manipulated by Perkins.
