A judge in Michigan says the 38-year-old mom accused of having sex with a teenager is banned from booze and Facebook while out on bail. Brooke Lajiness appeared in court on March 16 in the Pittsfield Township, just south of Ann Arbor. There, Lajiness told a judge that she had sex with a 14-year-old boy between eight and 15 times. The pair also exchanged naked photos via text messages, according to Michigan State Trooper Donald Pasternak. The abuse began in the summer of 2016 while the boy was in between middle and high school.
reported on August 7 that Lajiness had been sentenced to anywhere between four years and 15 years in prison after being found guilty.
During the court proceedings, the mother of a victim read out a statement saying, "You made a conscious effort on several occasions to make arrangements to meet my son, sneak out of your house, start your car, leave your husband and children at home and drive to my son’s father’s house, back into the driveway between midnight and 4 a.m., wait for my son to run in the driveway, commit a crime and leave. Did you know that this was wrong? Did you ever worry about the harm you were doing to my son?"
The boy's mother added that her son now struggles in school with the media attention the case has garnered.
While Lajiness' husband read a statement in court that attributed his wife's adultery to her insomnia.
Michigan Live reports that Lajiness first appeared in court on March 16, she will be back for a probable cause hearing on March 30. The website reports that Lejiness will be charged with 13 counts of third-degree criminal sexual contact, one count of accosting a minor and one count of furnishing obscenity to a child.
Michigan State Police Trooper Donald Pasternak told a jury on March 3 that he had been investigating Lejiness since February, reports Michigan Live. He said that the case began when the mother of the victim went to a trooper station and reported the abuse. Pasternak said that the majority of the sex took place in Lajiness' car. He added, "They started conversing and exchanging nude photographs while he was still in middle school."
