MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Cobb County prosecutors say a Georgia woman has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to several charges related to operating an unlicensed personal care home.

Cobb District Attorney Vic Reynolds said Thursday that 43-year-old Raequel Alita Penny pleaded guilty to 47 charges, including false imprisonment, theft and deprivation. Reynolds says Penny was sentenced to 20 years, with 10 to be spent in prison and the rest on probation.

Officials say six women were kept in the basement of a home in Marietta and they told investigators they were denied access to adequate toilets and kept in rooms as small as 11 feet by five feet.

Penny was also sentenced to 10 years of probation. Penny has been held without bond since April 1.
