LAWRENCEBURG, Kentucky — A central Kentucky woman has been sentenced to five years in prison for tying up her 3-year-old daughter for hours at a time.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1Bw3T2D ) reports Anderson County Circuit Judge Charles Hickman sentenced 32-year-old Rebecca Medley on Tuesday. She pleaded guilty in September to complicity to first-degree criminal abuse.

Medley was arrested in 2012 along with the girl's stepfather, 55-year-old Herbert C. Medley, and grandmother, 66-year-old Carolyn Case. Case was sentenced last year to five years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree criminal abuse.

Court files said Case reported tying the girl to the bed with a curtain sash because she got into things at night and tried to leave the house while others were asleep.

Hickman overruled Herbert Medley's motion to move his trial because of pretrial publicity.
