SAN ANTONIO (CBS Houston) - A local woman was given probation after confessing to Child Protective Services that she left her children alone for the sake of having sex with a 13-year-old neighbor.
According to My San Antonio, 26-year-old Amanda Ann Nabers will also have to register as a sex offender, a title which will stay with her for the rest of her life.
From February, 2011 to August, 2011, Nabers reportedly engaged in similar trysts with the child four or five times.
She also told authorities that she was high on a combination of marijuana and Xanax, an anti-anxiety medication, when she copulated with the unnamed teen.
Prosecutors involved in the case had recommended a prison sentence for Nabers, but District Judge Juanita Vasquez-Gardner decided otherwise.
The judge said that if Nabers had been a man, she would have likely been incarcerated, My San Antonio noted.
Defense attorney Carlos Martinez introduced her confession, the loss of her children, job and home, and the wishes of the victim’s family into the argument, which allegedly swayed Vasquez-Gardner.
