It didn’t take long for Ruby Franke to plead guilty to the child abuse charges. According to KUTV, the mom of six appeared in court in December 2023, just months after her arrest, and officially pleaded guilty. The plea deal agreement included two of the six counts of child abuse being dropped, and Franke had to testify against former business partner and friend Jodi Hildebrandt, who she said influenced her abuse toward her children. When asked by the judge what she pleaded, Franke told the court, “With my deepest regret and sorrow for my family and my children, guilty.”

The plea deal also went into more horrific details of the abuse that two of her children endured while under her care. According to documents obtained by Today, Franke would kick her son and hold his head underwater while restricting his breathing by covering his mouth and nose. She would also force her daughter to “work outside without shoes and run barefoot on dirt roads for an extended period of time.” With all the terrible details uncovered, not to mention her guilty plea, it was only a matter of time until Franke’s conviction.

Now, Franke has officially been sentenced to 4-60 years in prison for child abuse on February 20, 2024, per Page Six. Franke broke down in tears as the sentence was handed down, but with what she allegedly did to her children, many find it difficult to sympathize with her.
