Supreme Court to Hear Case of Woman Given Life For Second Base

ELKO, NV - The Supreme Court of Nevada will hear the appeal of a woman sentenced to life for allowing a teen boy to grope her breast.

We first told you about Michelle Taylor last year.

She was initially arrested for a gross misdemeanor after the 13-year-old boy touched her.

The Elko County District Attorney's Office bumped up the charges to felony lewdness with a child under 14, which carries a mandatory life sentence.

A jury convicted her, not knowing about the mandatory sentence.

That sentence, her attorneys argue, is cruel and unusual punishment.

The Supreme Court hasn't yet set a date for oral arguments.
