Judge places Sarah Kester on probation for 10 years

 

A mother who for years failed to report her husband’s sexual abuse of their daughters will be on probation for the next decade.

In February, Sarah Kester was sentenced for felony injury to a child after pleading guilty to the charge.

Her husband, Lester Kester Jr., pleaded guilty in November to five felony charges of lewd conduct with a minor.

The Idaho Press reports, at the time of Sarah Kester’s sentencing in February she was granted a rider treatment program. She completed her treatment in about five months. On Wednesday, she appeared in 3rd District Court for a rider review hearing, where the judge would either place her on probation or send her to prison.

The judge decided to place Kester on 10 years of probation, which will extend with a 10 year no-contact order against her children.

Lester Kester was sentenced in April to up to life in prison. He must serve 31 years before he’s eligible for parole.
