CINCINNATI (AP) - A Cincinnati woman who admitted giving an 11-year-old child to her drug dealer for sex in exchange for heroin will spend at least 51 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say 32-year-old April Corcoran was sentenced Tuesday in Cincinnati after pleading guilty last month to charges including trafficking in persons, complicity to rape and endangering children. She was sentenced to life with a chance for parole after 51 years.

Prosecutors say she gave the child to 42-year-old Shandell Willingham in exchange for heroin in 2014. Willingham is accused of sex crimes against the victim, some of which he allegedly videotaped. He has pleaded not guilty, and his trial is pending.

Corcoran also was accused of making the child take heroin.
