Valley woman sentenced to 20 years for abusing adopted daughters
PHOENIX – As part of a plea deal, a Valley woman was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison for abusing her adopted daughters, authorities said.
Kimery Jorg of Peoria changed her plea last month to guilty on two counts of child abuse.
She also received lifetime probation during sentencing in Maricopa County Superior Court.
Jorg and her husband were arrested in June 2014 for allegedly imprisoning and abusing their two adopted daughters for up to five years.
Police say the girls were ages 11 and 13 at the time and were found severely malnourished.
They say the Jorgs forced the girls to sleep in a tent in the backyard naked or dressed only in a diaper and punished them with hour-long running sessions in the heat.
Johann Jorg was sentenced to 14 years in prison for child abuse in 2015.
