(Scroll down for video) A woman has received a long prison sentence for having sex with an underage boy, who was friends with her son.
Courtney Reschke, 35, of Idaho, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for performing sexual acts on a 15-year-old boy.
Assistant district attorney Jean Fisher asked the judge for a harsh penalty during the sentencing hearing. “I think we need to look at her with the same parity we would have if the defendant was a male, We cannot minimize the criminal behavior of this defendant because she is a woman,” Fisher said in court.
The judge disagreed, claiming that there is a difference between male and female sex offenders, although she was sentenced to 20 years in prison she will be eligible for parole in 3 years.
As we reported earlier, Reschke, was getting too friendly with her son’s friends. She, is accused of providing alcohol to the minors before having sex with the boys. Reschke, is accused of having sex with four 15-year-old boys she allegedly met through her eldest son.
Police arrested the mother after they learned that she gave alcohol to the young boys before engaging in sex with the boys who were friends of her 10-year-old son. Her actions were allegedly discovered after her 5-year-old child was trying to get into the room while she was having sex, and Reschke ignored the child to continue having sex.
Reschke’s two children, a 5-year-old and 10 year-old, were home during at least one encounter, according to Assistant District Attorney, County Deputy Prosecutor Jean Fisher. “The five-year-old was attempting to get into the room to get the defendant’s attention during one of these encounters but the defendant ignored her,” Fisher said.
