LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - A 33-year-old Kapaa woman has been sentenced to 20 years in prison in a child sexual abuse case.
The Garden Island reports Jean Agonoy Paleracio pleaded no contest to videotaping her sexual acts with a child.
Paleracio, a former worker with the Kauai Economic Opportunity Early Learning Center, was sentenced Wednesday in 5th Circuit Court.
Judge Kathleen Watanabe said Paleracio took "ultimate advantage of a young boy." The victim was 11 years old.
Paleracio pleaded no contest to first-degree sexual assault and first-degree promotion of child abuse, and eight other felony charges were dismissed in December.
Prosecutors say Paleracio engaged in sexual activity with a minor male between May 1, 2009, and Sept. 1, 2010. Prosecutor Lisa Arin says the child is probably scarred for life.
