Holliday was indicted back in 2019 after being accused of having sex with a minor. Her husband, Jay Holliday, was sentenced to 156 years in prison after pleading guilty to 12 counts of sexual battery and 12 counts of felonious assault.

If she receives the maximum sentence, Holliday would face 13 years in prison. She's set to be sentenced in September.
