The wife of a convicted child rapist has been sentenced to prison for her participation in the depraved couple’s “horrendous” molestation of two young victims, according to a report.

Holly Greiner, 31, of Maryland, was sentenced Monday to five to 15 years in prison followed by 15 years of probation after she pleaded guilty to two counts — both felonies — of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, The York Dispatch reported.

Her husband, 29-year-old Robert Phillip Greiner, who Holly previously testified against, faces up to 134 years in state prison with a minimum of 67 years for molesting children.

A jury found Robert guilty on Nov. 3 of a slew of charges including child rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault and child endangerment.

Several other charges against Holly, including child rape, were dropped as the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Senior deputy prosecutor Chuck Murphy said the plea agreement was reached because of her cooperation with prosecutors when she testified against her husband at his trial, securing his conviction, according to the newspaper.

“There’s no minimizing how disgusting and horrendous these acts were,” Murphy told The York Dispatch.

Prosecutors say that the Greiner’s sexually abused two children — a 10-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl — over the course of six months.

Holly admitted to cops that she and her husband forced the kid victims to perform sex acts with each other and with them, according to The York Dispatch.

Both victims testified at Robert’s trial and one of them – the girl – said it was “because she didn’t want to have bad dreams about it anymore,” Murphy said.

A family member of the girl’s said in court Monday that she has not had any bad dreams about Robert since the trial, according to the news outlet.
