A 46-year-old Delaware woman was placed on probation Thursday after pleading guilty to having sex with her daughter’s 13-year-old boyfriend.
As reported by the Delaware News Journal, 46-year-old Elaine B. Goodman faced up to 15 years in prison when she pleaded guilty in November in Kent County Superior Court.
“This came out of the blue,” Kent County Judge Robert B. Young said. “The crime is egregious and affected the victim and his family, which was taken into account. But incarceration is not the answer.”
In addition to probation, Goodman was ordered to attend sexual disorder counseling and register as a sex offender.
The incident happened in March 2015 after Goodman arranged to meet the boy, who was sneaking out of his house to meet her about 1 a.m., according to court documents. It was discovered the pair drove around and then parked and had sex until about 4:30 in the morning when Goodman had to drop him off at home so that she could get ready for work.
Shortly after, Goodman told her friend via text message: “He is so cute with a nice … body,” according to the documents. “I asked him what in the world are u doing with a body like that at 13…”
