Misty Machinshok, from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, was arrested after a police investigation concluded that the woman had convinced her husband to have sex with her 15-year-old daughter in order to concieve a child with her.
Machinshok was sentenced to between 15 and 30 years in prison.
Police recorded some disturbing statements from Machinshok. It turned out that she herself was now infertile, but wanted to have a baby for her new husband.
The woman, who met her 29-year-old husband, Gary, on a website called onlinebootycall.com, planned to tell friends and family the girl got pregnant from a stranger during a party at their home.
Gary pleaded guilty to raping the girl “every few days” throughout the course of 2013, and admitted to also sexually assaulting the girl’s 11-year-old sister. He made a plea deal for assaulting the sister and did not have to face charges for that crime.
During trial, the Misty’s father, Bill Englert, defended his daughter, saying her involvement in the rape was “overemphasized.”
Misty said she pleaded guilty to the crimes so her daughter would not have to testify in court.
Both girls were placed in foster care following the couple’s arrest. The reason for Misty’s infertility was not disclosed.
The children have been placed in foster homes.
The 15-year-old girl ended up confiding in a teacher that she trusted at school, and that teacher called in the police and ACS for an investigation.
