A Las Vegas mother has agreed to plead guilty in a revolting sex abuse case involving the videotaped rapes of her own children, allegedly committed by her ex-husband, herself, and the man’s current wife, according to her lawyer.

Terrie Sena was charged along with Christopher Sena and wife Deborah Sena with the sexual assault of at least eight children over a span of more than 12 years.

Terrie Sena will plead guilty to one count of sexual assault, and will face charges of 10 years to life in prison, according to her attorney, Tom Pitaro, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The same plea arrangement was offered to Deborah Sena, prosecutor Jim Sweetin said Tuesday. She has a deadline of Feb. 5 to reply.

“It’s a substantial punishment. I think it’s fair, given all the circumstances,” prosecutor Jim Sweetin told the paper. The plea deals will “save the children from having to come in and testify,” he said.

The three adults lived in a trailer with their children, who were raped, molested and forced to have sex with the family dog, authorities said. Police also found videos of the attacks.

Christopher Sena was arrested in September after Deborah Sena and a child told an attorney about the abuse. The lawyer contacted authorities.

Both women were later arrested after authorities viewed the pornographic videos. Their attorneys say they were held against their will and abused by Christopher Sena.

Dozens of charges including incest, sexual assault, and child pornography were filed against the three.
