(CBS/AP) KEARNEY, Neb. - A mother convicted of prostituting her 7- and 14-year-old daughters across south-central Nebraska is facing up to 110 years in prison after being sentenced twice in the case.

The 36-year-old woman pleaded no contest in Buffalo County last month to conspiracy to commit child sexual assault and two felony counts of child pornography possession. She was sentenced to 80 to 90 years in prison.

She was sentenced again this week in Furnas County District Court to 12 to 20 years for conspiracy to commit a felony, the Hastings Tribune reported.

The woman pleaded no contest to nine similar felony counts in Franklin County. The Associated Press is not using her name to protect the identity of the girls.

The Nebraska State Patrol said the woman placed a personal ad online offering female companionship. She offered her 14-year-old daughter to an undercover police officer who posed as a man answering the ad on April 26.

State patrol said that in Buffalo County alone, the mother let at least seven men have sex with her 14-year-old a total of at least 20 times, and at least three men had sex with the 7-year-old.

Five men were convicted in the case so far and await sentencing.
