Judge Mark Serrot in an Ohio court has sentenced 23 year-old Amanda Brousey to 30 days in jail, three years of probation and 25 years of registration as a sex offender for having sex with a 14 year-old student.
According to the facts revealed in the criminal trial of Brousey, she was a school bus driver at a school at a school for students with emotional and behavioral problems. Brousey drove a 14 year-old student to a secluded location and proceeded to have sex with the student. Both Brousey and the student testified that the sex was consensual. Brousey further testified that the student told her that he was 16 – the legal age of consent in Ohio. The student refuted Brousey’s claim in this regard.
The jury deliberated a total of four minutes before finding Brousey guilty of four counts of unlawful sexual contact with a minor. Brousey appealed to Judge Serrot for leniency, but the judge was not moved. Judge Serrot commented on the charges by stating that “this is a serious offense whether it was consensual or not . . . if you were a man and this was a 14-year-old girl, the whole community would be up in arms if I didn’t give you jail time. And you deserve jail time.”
Brousey has promised to reform and “do good from now on.”
