PARAGOULD — An Arkansas woman has been sentenced to probation on charges she permitted child sex abuse.
The Paragould Daily Press reported that 34-year-old April M. Crow was sentenced to six years of probation. She had pleaded guilty in Greene County Circuit Court.
Paragould police arrested Crow last year after the Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline received a tip alleging that Crow's husband, Barry, had been having sex with an underage girl who was a family member. Forty-three-year-old Barry Crow pleaded guilty earlier to a charge of rape and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
Authorities say the girl told April Crow about the abuse, but April Crow failed to take action to stop it.
