A Lindale woman was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Monday for aggravated sexual assault of a child, a month after her husband received an identical sentence for the same case.

According to court documents, Samantha Mayer, 26, of Lindale, was charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child, a first degree felony, in March 2011. Samantha pleaded guilty to the crime on Monday. 

On June 11, her husband, 39-year-old James Lee Mayer, also of Lindale, entered a guilty plea for the same crime and was also sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Judge Kerry Russell presided over both cases.
