(Scroll down for video) A woman cried in court as she pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting kids during nude parties.
Sheryl Cox, and her husband Matthew of New Mexico, were arrested after holding nude parties, which allegedly involved children and teens.
Investigators said that she touched the children and forced teenagers to touch one another in a sexual manner.
The parent of eight children, are nudist, and walked around their home without clothes. One of their sons said that he was fine with his parents’ lifestyle. He said that his parents never molested him and they never forced him to live a nudist lifestyle.
“If you want to hang out without clothes on, go for it. It’s no problem. Nobody is offended by it,” he said. However, the parents were accused of molesting their three youngest children while holding nude parties with them.
Now, the mother admitted to raping and sexually abusing her young relatives. Cox’s parents and children were in the courtroom as she pleaded guilty to six counts of molesting a child under 13, rape and tampering with evidence.
The judge agreed to postpone her sentence for a few months so Cox may have a supervised visit with her children before going off to jail.
Sadly, her children will be without both parents as they spend time in jail. Her husband, Matthew, was sentenced to 18 years in prison as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.
