Accused child abuser changes plea

Posted: Updated:

A White River Junction woman charged with child sex assault is changing her plea.

Lucinda Smith accepted a plea deal in October and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.

Her husband, Steve Smith, reached a similar deal. But now the Valley News reports Lucinda Smith's lawyer has filed a motion to withdraw her guilty plea.

The state says it doesn't know why just yet.

The Smiths was arrested in 2012 when two teenagers came forward to police saying the couple coerced them into having sex.
