NAPA, Calif. (AP) - A 32-year-old California woman has been sentenced to four years and eight months in prison for engaging in incest with her teenage son.
Ukiah police interviewed the boy's relatives after his grandmother reported she had sexual contact with the 16-year-old.
Authorities arrested her in April in a motel room in Mendocino County with the boy. The Associated Press is not identifying the mother to protect the victim's identity.
The Napa Valley Register reports the woman pleaded no contest to incest, oral copulation, lewd contact with a minor and distribution of lewd material to a minor in May.
Before she was sentenced Thursday, she pleaded for leniency in a letter to the Napa County Superior Court claiming genetic attraction "is a very powerful (phenomenon) that happens to 50 (percent) of people becoming reunited with a long-lost relative."
