A Temecula woman who severely abused her two foster children was sentenced Friday, April 9, to 11 years and four months to life in state prison.
Yoko Isaac, 45, abused a 3-year-old girl and her 11-year-old brother, according to the Riverside County district attorney’s office. She pleaded guilty to felony charges of torture and child abuse in exchange for prosecutors agreeing to drop a dozen related felony counts as part of a plea deal.
Superior Court Judge Paul Dickerson handed down the sentence Friday at the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta.
Her husband, Aaron Thomas Isaac, previously pleaded not guilty to two felony counts each of child endangerment and false imprisonment. He is free on $50,000 bond, and scheduled to return to court June 16, for a felony settlement confere
