A woman who forced two young girls to perform oral sex on her has been jailed.

32-year-old Ashley Ragusa, from Ohio, US, was handed a nine-year sentence for abusing her children in a case which has been described as “almost like a horror movie”.

Ragusa was charged with three counts of gross sexual imposition for incidents with the  two young girls between January, 2012, and December 24, 2013.

Prosecutors said she forced the girls to perform oral sex on her.

“There were acts that were perpetrated on these children that in my mind are unconscionable,” Judge Myron Duhart, of Lucas County Common Pleas Court, told her.

The judge said the children saw violent arguments that Ragusa had with her boyfriend.

“Those actions and those conditions on those children are horrific,” the judge said.

“I don’t think there is a sentence I could give you that would right those wrongs. I’m not sure it’s in my power to dispense any justice commensurate with what those children suffered.”

The judge noted that Ragusa had no prior criminal history but also found that she had shown no genuine remorse.

Judge Duhart classified Ragusa as a child victim sex offender who must register her address with the sheriff in the county where she lives and works every 90 days for the rest of her life.
