A Texas City woman Friday was sentenced to 52 years in prison for sexually assaulting a then-16-year-old, Galveston County Assistant District Attorney Beverly Armstrong said.

Aimee Charlene Orgo, 37, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault of a prohibited person and one count of sexual performance of a child.

Orgo faced a punishment range of 5 to 99 years or life in prison on each of the two counts of sexual assault of a prohibited person and 2 to 20 years in prison for the charge of sexual performance of a child.

Since Orgo had no other felonies on her record, she was eligible for probation on the two counts of sexual assault of a prohibited person, Judge Lonnie Cox said during the punishment phase of the trial.

There was no option for probation on the count of sexual performance of a child, Cox said.

“She’s going to prison,” Armstrong said. “The only question is, for how long? This woman abused her victim for hours over a day, multiple days and then invited someone else to join in on the abuse. What is fair? What is right?”

Orgo, with the alleged help of her husband, forced the teenage girl to commit multiple sex acts with them and took sexually explicit and posed photos with the girl, Armstrong said.

“This is a life case,” Armstrong said during the sentencing portion of the trial. “People who abuse a victim on multiple occasions deserve to be in prison for life.”

Orgo and her husband, Matthew Bryan Orgo, were arrested in 2015 and charged with four counts of sexual assault of a child.

When the jury returned, they sentenced Aimee Charlene Orgo to 20 years in prison on each of the sexual assault cases and 12 years for the sexual performance of a child charge, Armstrong said.

The sentences will be served consecutively, Armstrong said.

Matthew Bryan Orgo’s trial is set for 9 a.m. March 27 in the 56th District Court, Cox presiding, court records show.

Aimee Charlene Orgo will be eligible for parole after serving half of her sentence, or 26 years.

She is required to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life, Amstrong said.
