Summer Nelson, a 28-year-old woman from Idaho apparently had sex with a 14-year-old boy that she was hired to babysit.
It sounds like a made-for-TV movie, but it’s real: the 28-year-old babysitter took a fancy to the 14-year-old boy she was watching, and apparently had sex with him at least four times during 2007 and 2008.
She has been charged with four counts of lewd conduct with a child.
Summer Nelson was apparently a friend of the boy’s mother, and babysat him while the mom was away… a lot. Eventually, the 14-year-old’s mother got suspicious (why would a 28-year-old babysitter WANT to hang around a kid).
Here’s the weird part: Summer apparently told the 14-year-old’s siblings that “they were in love” and when confronted by the boy’s mom, asked for her “blessing” on their pedophiliac/child relationship.
The 28-year-old babysitter is now behind bars. If she is convicted of all four counts of lewd conduct, she could spend the rest of her life in prison. But I bet she’ll get off easy – remember Debra LaFave, Pamela Rogers, or Mary Kay LeTourneau?
As South Park has shown us, women that have sex with underage boys receive light, if any, jail time. If the genders were reversed, any man would be put away for life.
