JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A judge sentenced a 63-year-old woman to 14 years in prison after she pleaded guilty to a charge of child neglect involving the sexual abuse of a nine-year-old girl.

Patricia Woloszynowski plead guilty Wednesday morning, according to a news release from State Attorney Angela Corey's office.

The release said immediately after entering her plea, a judge sentenced Woloszynowski to 14 years in prison.

Police arrested Woloszynowski in March 2011 after a nine-year-old girl told police a sex offender, Roberg Goenig Young, repeatedly abused her, the release said.

Prosecutors obtained evidence which showed Woloszynonwski knew about the abuse and did not do anything about it.

Assistant State Attorney Alan Mizrahi said, "This is the final conviction in an overwhelmingly sad case.  Despite suffering unimaginable betrayal, this child is doing amazingly well in her new home.  She recently finished second in a school wide spelling bee and believes that she can conquer anything.  I believe she can."

The release said Woloszynowski is one of five people police arrested in the case.

Christopher Perry was convicted in October 2012 and sentenced to six life sentences on five charges of sexual battery, one charge to lewd or lascivious molestation, one charge of conspiracy to commit sexual battery and one charge of child neglect.

Perry's wife, Mary Perry, was sentenced to 30 years, the release said, on charges of child neglect ad conspiracy to commit sexual battery.

Robert Young pled guilty to molesting the nine-year-old and faces life in prison, according to the release.

Michael Halveland pled guilty to lews or lascivious molestation and also faces life in prison.

The release said both Halveland and Young are scheduled to be sentenced next week.
