Beebe woman sentenced for sex with student

Posted: Updated:

BEEBE, AR (AP) - An Arkansas woman has been sentenced to six years of probation after she admitted having sex with a 15-year-old she met while substitute teaching.

The Daily Citizen reports (http://bit.ly/1ojvFdX ) that 27-year-old Melissa J. Stevens of Beebe pleaded guilty to fourth-degree sexual assault as part of a deal with White County prosecutors. She also must pay a $1,000 fine and register as a sex offender.

Police in Beebe say they got a call in December from a 15-year-old boy who said he'd had sex with Stevens in a home.

A sheriff's detective says she spoke with a different 15-year-old boy who confirmed that the encounter happened at his house.
