Jayme Kushman, 38, pleaded guilty of prison sentence to five counts of child abuse and has been sentenced to 15 years behind bars, while Jaime Kay Sena, 30, pleaded no contest to four counts of child abuse and received a six-year prison sentence. The case with prison sentence unfolded in 2022 when state child welfare workers received a tip about children locked in cages. A subsequent investigation by New Mexico State Police revealed six children, aged 5 to 16, living in deplorable conditions with Kushman and Sena. Disturbing security footage spanning three days depicted the children enduring starvation, beatings, and being restrained with chains for extended periods of time.

During court proceedings for the prison sentence, prosecutors presented segments of the video evidence, revealing the horrifying abuse inflicted on the children. Shockingly, one child had been chained to their bed for a continuous 14-hour period without access to food, water, or bathroom facilities. The victims included Sena’s own children, Kushman’s family members, and at least one foster child. State District Judge Drew Tatum, acknowledging the possibility of prison sentence, the severity of the case, stated that although the children had endured unimaginable cruelty, they would be able to overcome their trauma through proper treatment and therapy. Meanwhile, a third defendant, Lora Melancon, is anticipated to plead guilty to two counts of child abuse for prison sentence as part of a plea agreement later this week.
