A former social worker, who admitted she lied about sexual abuse cases involving children, has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Geri Murphy learned her sentence Tuesday morning in Anderson County. She pleaded guilty to nine counts of falsifying documents.
Prosecutors said Murphy left children in homes where they were being sexually assaulted, never looked into the claims, then lied to the state. Among the more disturbing cases listed in her indictment, the sexual abuse of a three-year-old by their biological father.
"The court has reviewed all the information in this case and is frankly disturbed by the nature of actions or non-actions that were taken in these specific instances," Judge Charles Hickman said from the bench.
A state official testified before Murphy was sentenced Tuesday, saying abuse in Kentucky continues because of Murphy's actions.
"The fact that these children could be left in the hands of possible abusres is particularly disturbing to the court," Hickman said. "To grant probation would diminish the seriousness of these offenses and I'm denying the motion for probation."
Murphy appeared to be surprised she was denied probation and sentenced to five years as she was taken into custody.
Assistant Attorney General Barbara Whaley commented "I feel like it sent a message---the system meant to protect children cannot be breached without serious consequences."
Murphy has been living in Florida. Judge Hickman says she must serve her time in Kentucky.
