Montana Woman Gets 15 Years for Video Recording Child Rape

Kimberly Ann Cooke pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual abuse of children

GREAT FALLS – A Montana woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for making a video recording a 29-year-old man raping a 12-year-old girl.

The Great Falls Tribune reports 43-year-old Kimberly Ann Cooke pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual abuse of children as part of a plea agreement. She was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in the Montana Women’s Prison with five years suspended.

District Judge John Kutzman told Cooke she “failed morally in a way that ordinary words can’t describe.”

Cooke’s co-defendant, Joshua David Rowland, has pleaded guilty to sexual intercourse without consent and sexual abuse of children as part of a plea agreement. Investigators found five videos of sex acts with the girl.

Rowland’s sentencing date has not been set.
