A 33-year-old Hawaiian woman will spend the next 20 years behind bars for filming herself having sex with an 11-year-old boy. According to The Garden Island, Jean Paleracio was a “family friend” to the guardians of the victim.
Paleracio began engaging in sexual contact with the boy in 2009 and the abuse continued until 2010. While abusing the child, Paleracio would film the sexual acts, which were found by authorities during a search of her home.
Paleracio was arrested and charged with first-degree sexual assault and first-degree promotion of child abuse.
However, Paleracio pleaded no contest and avoided going to trial. She cut a deal with prosecutors and the judge sentenced her to 20 years in prison.
