Portland, US -- An 84-year-old woman who confessed to having sex with an 11-year-old boy in her foster care has reached a deal with US prosecutors and pleaded guilty to attempted sex abuse.
Georgie Audean Buoy will serve 36 months in prison, said Leslie Wolf, chief deputy district attorney for Wasco County, Oregon.
Buoy was originally charged with six counts, including attempted rape, for which she faced 8 years in prison, Mr Wolf said. In taped confession, Buoy admitted to having sex with the boy while he was in her car in 2004, he said. Her age and lack of criminal convictions played a role in the plea deal. Buoy, of The Dalles, Oregon, was a longtime member of her church and volunteered at the county jail, Mr Wolf said.
She must register as sex offender after serving her sentence, and must pay $US 5000 to the victim, and up to US$ 7500 in restitution for counseling.
