gavel(AP) — A 30-year-old Lincoln woman has been given 18 months of probation for having sex with her former foster child.

The woman was sentenced Tuesday for child abuse.

At a trial in May, the now 20-year-old man said he was 15 when he moved in with the woman and her husband in 2008. She became his legal guardian about a year later. He says she kissed him one day in 2010, then had sex the next night.

Her lawyer argued the subsequent two-year relationship was consensual. The prosecutor said the woman put the teenager in a situation that endangered his life or physical or mental health by sexually abusing him.

The Post is not naming the woman, to protect the man’s identity.

    If he was seventeen in 2010 then he was at the age of consent. I am in NO WAY justifying her actions, but what she did is it a crime?
