Louisburg woman convicted of sexually abusing 3 Missouri children

March 4, 2011


— A Louisburg woman faces a long stretch in prison after being convicted of sexually abusing three young children in Missouri.

Forty-one-year-old Laurie Becker was sentenced Thursday to 12 concurrent life sentences and three 15-year prison terms for 15 counts of sex crimes against children. She pleaded guilty in December.

The Sedalia Democrat reports that Becker and her ex-boyfriend, 49-year-old Terry Prisendorf, of Sedalia, were charged after two women reported that the couple abused them in 1996 and 1997.

The victims, who were 8 and 9 at the time, were Becker’s relatives who lived with the couple. A third victim came forward with similar allegations shortly thereafter.

Prisendorf was sentenced in February to 11 consecutive life terms in prison.
