A Lockport Township woman admitted sexually abusing three young relatives to a Will County judge Tuesday.
Marlena D. Hammond, 39, faces a maximum 21-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse before Judge Edward Burmila. Prosecutors said the abuse happened in 2009 and 2010 when the victims were 14, 13 and 12 years old.
Prosecutors dropped four additional counts against Hammond in exchange for her plea, and Burmila scheduled a Sept. 20 sentencing hearing.
