A Michigan mother-of-two has been sentenced to 15 years in jail after using nude Snapchats to lure two teenagers into having sex with her.
The Daily Mail reports that 38-year-old Brooke Lajiness of Lima Township has been sentenced by a Washtenaw County judge to 15 years in prison on Monday, after she pled guilty to two counts of statutory rape, one for having sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old and another for having oral sex with a 15-year-old.
As part of a plea deal agreed to with prosecutors, Lajiness also pled guilty to accosting a child for immoral purposes and one count of sending nude photos of herself to a minor. According to the Anne Arbor News, the prosecution dismissed ten charges in exchange for Lajiness’ guilty pleas.
“I fear the toll this will take on my family in my absence,” Lajiness said in a statement before her sentencing. “These last few months have been excruciating to watch the emotional effects [sic] this had on everyone around me.”
It has been reported that Lajiness had sex with one teen 15 times after sending him nude selfies. The relationship began when the boy was in middle school and escalated as he got older.
Michigan State Police Trooper Donald Pasternak said Lajiness also had sex with two boys in the back of her car while it was parked in her driveway. The mother of the victim tipped off Pasternak to Lajiness’ conduct and he investigated her for a few weeks before her March 3 arrest.
The mother of the victim gave an emotional testimony in court.
“Your actions will affect my son and his relationships with others for the rest of his life,” she said.
