A Covington, Indiana woman will likely spend the rest of her life behind bars for molesting three young children.

A Fountain County judge sentenced 26-year-old Samantha Light to 125 years in prison.

In October, Light plead guilty to performing sexual acts on three children and videotaping them with boyfriend Stephen E. Quick. The incidents took place from September 2008 until February 2009.

The victims were Light’s own two-month-old girl, a one-year-old boy, and a six-year-old boy.

Stephen Quick still faces trial.

Parents of the other two victims were so outraged by the crime that they agreed to talk to News Channel 18 about their children.

Larrisa Smith is a mother of one of the victims. She says she didn’t buy the emotional statement Light read in the Fountain County Courtroom, trying to get the judge to show leniancy before sentencing.

After that statement, Smith stood and delivered one of her own, calling her former friend “a monster.”

“I want her to think about my kid, and her kid, and her kid. I want her to think about her daughter and all the things she’s missing because she chose to miss those things. She chose it, she brought it on herself,” said Smith.

Angela Hayman and Samantha Light are family, but that didn’t stop Light from molesting her cousin’s son.

“It’s hard to hear it over and over and over again. It’s not something you want to think about every day and I’m just ready for this to be over with because I just want to move on. I just want to take care of my son and I don’t want to have to wake up every morning thinking about what happened to him,” said Hayman.

Smith said this group will pull together and be there for all three kids to try and limit any long-term negative effects.

“It’s a horrible thing. It evokes anger, betrayal,” said Smith.

Samantha Light received 40 years apiece for the first two felony counts, and 45 years for the third count. Circuit Judge Susan Orr Henderson increased the sentence on the third count due to the very young age of Light’s own daughter.

The maximum sentence was 150 years, but because of Light’s remorse and lack of prior record, Henderson trimmed off 25 years.

Light’s 125-year sentence is not enough, according to Larrisa Smith. When asked what punishment would fit the crime, Smith said she favored the death penalty.
