Nederland woman sentenced to 50 years for repeated child sex abuse
A 39-year-old Nederland woman has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for repeatedly sexually abusing a child.
A jury found Tamora Angel Foster guilty last Friday and assessed the 50-year punishment. District Judge Raquel West formally sentenced Foster Monday.
In the summers of 2015 and 2016, Foster forced a child to engage in sexual intercourse and oral sex on separate occasions, according to Jefferson County prosecutors.
The victim was 11 and 12 years old at the time.
Kim Pipkin, who prosecuted the case, credited law enforcement, Child Protective Services, witnesses and the jury for their roles in securing the verdict.
“It’s hard to imagine a more emotional and disturbing set of facts than those in this case," Pipkin said in a news release. "It was an especially difficult week for everyone involved."
Foster must serve every day of her sentence and will never be eligible for parole. She must also register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
