An update on the case of Larry Russell.
He and his wife admitted to abusing their children by keeping them locked in a room with out food, water or a bathroom.
As part of a plea deal Larry was to be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The local court thought that would be the maximum sentence allowed.
Russell appealed that sentence and that is when the Indiana Court of Appeals said that the 10 year limit didn’t apply and threw out the deal.
Russell’s attorney has until July 7th to file new paper work for sentencing in the case.
It could be the end of the year before Russell knows what his sentence could be.
