A convicted child molester’s wife has been sentenced to time behind bars for her role in the shameful couple’s “horrendous” rape of two young victims.

Maryland resident Holly Greiner, 31, was sentenced to five to 15 years behind bars, along with 15 years of probation after she pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary sexual intercourse with a child, according to The York Dispatch.

Her husband, Robert Phillip Greiner, 29, who she previously testified against, is facing 134 years in prison with at least 67 years for child molestation.

A jury convicted Greiner back in November on a myriad of charges that include child rape, involuntary sexual intercourse, aggravated assault, and child endangerment.

Several other charges against Holly, one of which include child rape, were dismissed as the result of a plea deal.

Senior deputy prosecutor Chuck Murphy said the plea deal was agreed upon because of her assistance to prosecutors when she testified against her husband, securing his guilty verdict.

“There’s no minimizing how disgusting and horrendous these acts were,” Murphy said in an interview with The York Dispatch.

Prosecutors say that the Greiner’s abused two victims — a 10-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl — over a six-month duration.

Holly confessed to investigators that she and her husband forced the kid victims to have sex with each other and with them.

Both of the children testified at Robert’s trial and the girl said she was doing it “because she didn’t want to have bad dreams anymore,” Murphy added.
