BROOMFIELD, Colo. (CBS4) – A Broomfield couple is going to jail after being convicted of child abuse at their in-home day care.

Cheryl Nicaise and her husband Richard agreed to a plea deal. Cheryl will spend one year in jail and Richard was sentenced to nine months.

Investigators say the couple was caring for as many as 16 children, which is 10 more than their license allowed.

During an inspection 14 children, most under age of two, were seen sleeping in car seats in a darkened room.
