JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS)- Randy and Bobbi Stevens, charged with first-degree child abuse for allowing their children to associate with a known sex offender, pleaded guilty Monday in a Jackson County Court to less serious charges.
"Based on the witnesses we had available or not available was how we reached this agreement," said Jackson County Prosecutor Jerry Jarzynka.
Bobbi Stevens was released on bond last month. She was expected to assist the prosecution and possibly testify against her husband at today's probable cause hearing. Other witness testimony was expected as well.
As part of the plea agreement, Randy Stevens pleaded guilty to second-degree child abuse, and arson for allegedly setting fire to a Leoni Township home in 2011. Both charges carry a maximum of 10 years in prison. The father of 14 also agreed to give up his parental rights to all of his children.
Randy Steven's niece, Torrieann Williams choked back tears as she said her uncle is innocent.
"He's too good of a man and he never abused his kids. That's a lie," said 20-year-old Williams. She said Randy Stevens has cancer and hepatitis and only pleaded guilty to speed up the process in the hope that he receive medical care in prison.
Bobbi Stevens pleaded guilty to fourth-degree child abuse, punishable by a maximum of 1 year in jail. The Department of Human Services is moving to terminate her parental rights as well.
