Tessa L. Vanvlerah was sentenced at the end of April to two consecutive life terms in prison for prostituting her then-five-month-old daughter to Kenneth L. Kyle. Kyle would travel to Ballwin, Missouri from San Francisco to sexually abuse the daughter and produce child pornography, crimes to which he's already pleaded guilty and received a 37-year sentence.
Pathetic Tessa allowed Kyle to choke her, burn her and urinate on her during their visits.
Attorneys argued for probation, based on a claim that Vanverlah had a psychological condition called dependent-personality disorder. The daughter was placed into protective custody in 2010, and has since been adopted.
