A 25-year-old Waco woman was sentenced today in 19th State District Court for having sex with a 16-year-old boy.
Judge Ralph Strother sentenced Rhiannon Smith, who works at a phone bank, to eight years deferred probation, a $1,000 fine and 300 hours of community service. She also has to register as a sex offender.
Smith in April pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault of a teenaged boy. She was arrested in March on five charges. According to arrest affidavits, Smith had sexual intercourse and sexual contact with the victim in her apartment Dec. 27 and Jan. 20.
She told police that she just finished a three-year relationship and “just wasn’t thinking right” when she had sexual intercourse with the teenager, whom she described as a family friend.
