When Karasav articulated his reasons for departing from sentencing guidelines, he spoke of Casey’s remorse even amid pressure from her mother, who had said she would disown her daughter if she admitted to committing crimes against the children. Casey’s parental rights to her daughter have also been terminated.

After serving her prison term, she will be on probation for 10 years, during which time she will be required to review her case in court annually.

There’s a need to balance punishment and public safety, Karasov said.

“We want to make sure you succeed,” he said to Casey. “Does all this make sense to you?”

Casey’s attorneys then hugged her before she was escorted away in handcuffs.
