LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - An east Alabama mother could spend 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple sex abuse charges.

Sonya Rae Reese Lehman, 40, of Phenix City, AL, pleaded guilty to three counts of production of obscene matter on Wednesday, and was sentenced to 20 years on each count to serve concurrently. 

Lehman requested a split sentence and was denied by a judge. 

The conviction also requires that the defendant must register under Alabama's Sexual Offender Registration and Community Notification Act (SORNA), if she is ever released. 

Lehman was arrested on Feb. 6 at her home after the Lee County Sheriff's Office received a complaint that she was sexually abusing children, dating back to August 2013.
