According to the outlet, Andrea Serrano will serve 90 days in jail minus the seven days she has already served.
This decision was made after the family of the alleged sexual assault victim condemned the court for initially allowing Serrano to accept a plea deal with no jail time.
The initial plea deal solely consisted of Serrano serving “ten years to life” on a “sex offender intensive supervised probation.”
The victim’s mother reportedly spoke with KKTV after the plea deal was offered to Serrano in March.
“I feel like my son is robbed of his childhood. Now he’s having to be a father. He’s a victim, and he’s going to have to live with that for the rest of his life… I feel like if she was a man and he was a little girl, it would definitely be different. They would be seeking more. I feel like because he is not a woman, they are not. They are having compassion for her.”
Additionally, the 13-year-old’s mother shared her sentiments with the court. She reportedly explained that giving the 31-year-old no jail time for sexually abusing and having a child with a minor would set a “bad example for the community.”
“…she needs to go to jail…”
During Serrano’s sentencing, she reportedly expressed her desire to apologize to the victim, his family, her family, and her children.
According to KKTV, the 31-year-old will begin serving her jail sentence next week.
