(Scroll down for video) A woman was ordered to register as a sex offender after she had sex with her younger brother.
The 25-year-old woman of Portland, Oregon, admitted to having sex 10 times with her brother, who is mentally disabled.
The woman became pregnant by her younger brother, and has since given birth to his child.
The woman has avoided a prison term and was ordered to attend mental health and sex offender treatment programs.
The lenient sentence reflects the woman’s disturbing past. According to court documents, she was raped by her mother’s boyfriend when she was 8 to 11 years old.
The woman’s stepfather had pleaded guilty to the abuse and is now serving 20 years in prison.
The woman pleaded guilty to sexually abusing her younger brother, who was under the age of 18 at the time and has an IQ of 54, according to court documents.
The woman told Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Walker, that she takes medication for anxiety and depression.
As part of the plea deal, the woman was allowed to walk free from the courtroom, but was sentenced to three years probation. She was ordered to register as a sex offender and was banned from contacting her younger brother or any other underage males.
The woman’s mentally disabled brother lives with his mother. It is unclear who is raising the baby.
