KANSAS CITY — Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri announced that a Lebanon woman pleaded guilty in federal court today to her role in the sex trafficking of a victim who was coerced into being a tortured sex slave for several years.

Marilyn Bagley, 47, of Lebanon, pleaded guilty to her role in a conspiracy to commit sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion.

Bagley admitted that the victim, identified as "Female Victim" (FV), was subject to acts of torture over a six-year time period. The suspects performed acts of strangulation and sexual penetration with skewers and electrical voltage.

Under the terms of Thursday's binding plea agreement, Bagley will receive a sentence of probation. Officials stated in court that Bagley is in a separate category from the other defendants due to her victimization of extensive physical and emotional abuse prior to her criminal conduct and participation in the conspiracy.

Co-defendant Michael Stokes, 47, of Lebanon, pleaded guilty on Jan. 5, 2012, to participating in the conspiracy.

Co-defendant Bradley Cook, 34, of Kirkwood, pleaded guilty on Dec. 20, 2011, to participating in the conspiracy.

Under the terms of a binding plea agreement, Cook is subject to a sentence of 20 years in federal prison without parole. Cook must also pay restitution to the victim. The court may force him with a term of supervised release up to life. Cook must also forfeit to the government the computer media he used to commit the offense.

Co-defendant Dennis Henry, 52, of Wheatland, formerly the postmaster of Nevada, Mo., pleaded guilty on March 24, 2011, to participating in the conspiracy. Henry also pleaded guilty to transporting the victim across state lines for sexual activity. Henry admitted that he engaged in sex with the victim, and participated in torture sessions with FV that would last for hours.

Under federal statutes, Henry is subject to a sentence of up to 15 years in federal prison without parole, plus a fine up to $500,000 and an order of restitution.

Co-defendant James Noel, 47, of Springfield, pleaded guilty on Feb. 24, 2011, to participating in the conspiracy. Noel admitted that he was one of the customers who sexually abused and tortured
