PHOENIX -- A Phoenix woman accused in the abuse of foster children has been sentenced to 10 years of supervised probation.

Maricopa County prosecutors said 56-year-old Alma Holland was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to two counts of child abuse.

Holland and her 53-year-old husband were arrested in October 2012.

Phoenix police said the Hollands were foster parents to approximately 15 children ranging in age from 4 to 17 between 2005 and 2011.

Authorities said Steven Holland is accused of sexual conduct with a minor, furnishing obscene material to a minor, child molestation, sexual abuse and unlawful videotaping, over a six-year period.

They said his wife did nothing to stop it.

Child Protective Services removed the children from the home and revoked the Hollands' foster-care license.
