A Hawaiian woman who had sex with and videotaped herself with an 11-year-old boy will spend 20 years behind bars for her disgusting crimes.
According to the New York Daily News, Jean Paleracio was convicted of assaulting the boy and videotaping the acts on several occasions from May 2009 through September 2013.
Paleracio pleaded no contest to first degree sexual assault charges and first-degree promotion of child abuse. She was scolded by Judge Kathleen Wantanabe for her despicable acts and called a “sexual predator.”
"There is no other way to put it, Ms. Paleracio, other than you took ultimate advantage of a young boy," said Wantanabe.
The Daily Mail noted that Paleracio, who worked at a center for childhood education, befriended and knew the youngster through his family.
The 33-year-old was sentenced to two prison terms, to be served concurrently and ordered to pay $45 in restitution to the victim, a $610 crime victim compensation fee and register as a sex offender.
