Advisory: This story contains elements of a sexual and violent nature

A judge in Mercer County has sentenced a second person in connection with multiple sex offenses committed against a two girls, who were 10 and 14 years old at the time they reported the crimes to authorities.

Victoria Marie Poling, 27, was given a sentence of 35 to 70 years in prison on Monday.

Earlier this year, Poling was convicted of four charges including conspiracy and deviate sexual intercourse.

Poling and 39-year-old Terry Bowser, both of Sharpsville, were arrested on nearly 200 charges last June after police say they raped the victim and threatened her in order to keep the crimes a secret.

Detectives requested the help of Mercer County Children's Advocacy Center after the 14-year-old girl told a relative she had been sexually assaulted for years.

According to an affidavit, the girl told investigators the abuse began when she was in the sixth grade,  after Poling kissed her and forced her to take showers with her.

She said that Bowers also began to shower with them.

The 14-year-old girl told police she was threatened with punishment, and told that she would not be able to attend school if she told anyone.

The teen said that both Bowser and Poling made her perform sex acts and watch pornography with them.

The police report explained the 14-year-old told a relative after she began fearing for the safety of a second girl, who was 10 years old at the time.

The 10-year-old told police that the abuse began when she was nine-years-old.

The sex related charges against Bowser were withdrawn.

However, he was convicted of firearm offenses and was sentenced earlier this month to 17 to 40 years in prison.
