Married mom goes to prison for sex with teenage boys
A married mother of two who had sex with two teens after luring them with naked pictures on Snapchat was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison — after she called the ordeal the “biggest regret of my life.”
Brooke Lajiness, 38, of Lima Township, Mich., was sentenced Monday to four years and nine months to 15 years in prison following an earlier guilty plea to several counts of criminal sexual conduct, MLive.com reports.
Lajiness, who authorities say confessed to having sex with the boys in her car when they were 14 and 15 last summer, appeared on the verge of tears while reading a statement before a judge prior to sentencing.
“This has been the biggest regret of my life,” she said. “My family means everything to me, and I’ve caused them great pain for these regretful choices I have made.”
The mother of one of the victims said in an impact statement — which was read by a victim advocate — that her son has suffered serious psychological and emotional damage from the illicit trysts.
