Montgomery took the child with her and attempted to pass the girl off as her own, prosecutors said.Montgomery’s lawyers have argued that their client suffers from serious mental illnesses.Attorney Sandra Babcock said in a statement: “It is difficult to grasp the extremity of the horrors Lisa suffered from her earliest childhood, including being raped by her stepfather, handed off to his friends for their use, sold to groups of adult men by her own mother and repeatedly gang raped, and relentlessly beaten and neglected.
