DEADWOOD, South Dakota — A Lead woman has been sentenced to 15 years in the State Penitentiary for having sex with a 12-year-old boy.
Staci Jo Graves was arrested in March and pleaded guilty to two felonies in late August in a plea agreement with prosecutors. The Rapid City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1xYr9Dc ) that she was sentenced Thursday.
Prosecutor Brenda Harvey said the plea deal spared the victim from having to testify at a trial.
Graves is in her early 40s. She will be eligible for parole in 7 ½ years.
