Woman pleads guilty to abusing teens, could get 16 years

A Pear Park woman accused of chaining up her former boyfriend’s son to a bannister for up to 12 hours a day for months on end could get up to 16 years in prison, according to terms of a plea agreement.

Kristie Moore, 34, is a co-defendant with 40-year-old John Wilson, accused of abusing two teenagers in their home. Authorities allege the boy was handcuffed to a banister, beaten with a leather belt and starved, and that the boy’s sister was abused.

Wilson on Monday was sentenced by Mesa County District Judge Richard Gurley to 10 years on probation, which includes two years of work release.

Moore pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony child-abuse charges and faces an open sentencing, which could include prison, jail, probation or community corrections.

Moore will be sentenced Oct. 30.
