DALLAS (KRLD) - A Texas couple was sentenced Friday to a combined 140 years in prison for crimes against multiple children.

The U.S. Department of Justice says Christopher Regan and Tanya Regan from Big Spring, Texas pleaded guilty to the October 2019 crimes. 

U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas says Christopher Regan, a former shipping logistics manager, was sentenced to 90 years in prison, while Tanya Regan will serve 50 years. 

In plea papers, the pair admitted that at Christopher Regan's direction, Tanya Regan videotaped herself sexually abusing children for his sexual gratification.

"These heinous crimes were conducted by sexual predators who posed a serious danger to children," said United States Attorney Erin Nealy Cox. "I commend the swift and dedicated work of law enforcement, and am glad we were able to serve justice for the victims."
