A Filipino woman from Cebu, the Philippines, on Wednesday was sentenced to 21 years in prison for online child sexual abuse.

The 22-year-old Filipina was arrested in June last year after it was found that she live-streamed her children being sexually abused in exchange for money. The woman reportedly received 3,000 pesos from a foreigner to do the abuse, Philippine Lifestyle News reported.

Authorities rescued three girls aged 12 to 15, as well as the suspect’s two sons, aged two and five, and her four-year-old daughter. According to the International Justice Mission, this was the eighth case of online child sexual abuse in Cebu this year.

On Wednesday at the Regional Trial Court Branch 11 in Cebu City, the woman pleaded guilty to Attempted Trafficking in Persons and Aiding or Abetting in the Commission of Cybercrime.

The court sentenced her to 15 years for Attempted Trafficking in Persons and six years for Aiding or Abetting in the Commission of Cybercrime. She was also fined 1.1 million pesos.
