The Region : Child Molester Gets Record Prison Term
The longest prison term ever imposed on a woman in California was handed down by Kern County Superior Court Judge Gary Friedman, who sentenced Grace Dill, 50, to 405 years after her conviction with six other Bakersfield residents in a child molestation ring. Friedman broke the record he set last Friday when he sentenced Dill’s daughter, Marcella Pitts, 29, to 373 years in the same case. Friedman also imposed the second-longest term ever given a man in California--405 years--on Dill’s son, Wayne, 29. Another woman, Gina Miller, 24, faced a probable 405-year sentence.
