EAGLE, Idaho (AP) — A husband and wife who worked at a religious nonprofit in Eagle that provides housing and services to homeless and vulnerable children have each been sentenced to up to 30 years in prison for sexually abusing teenage girls.
The Idaho Statesman reports that Jennifer and Michael Magill will serve at least 12 and 10 years, respectively, under the sentence handed down Friday by 4th District Judge Jason Scott. The pair were house parents at one of the four houses that make up the Christian Children's Ranch, with each house accommodating up to 10 children. They both wept during the sentencing hearing.
