RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - A Reno woman has been sentenced to three months in jail for having sex with her 16-year-old foster son.
Lori Wilson, 48, was sentenced Monday, January 13, 2020 after pleading guilty to Statutory Sexual Seduction.
According to court documents, Wilson's husband contacted a social services foster care licensing worker in May of 2019 and admitted to lying during an initial investigation about the relationship between his wife and his foster son, and told the worker that the two did have a sexual relationship.
After interviewing the victim, investigators learned of several sexual encounters between Wilson and the victim between April and May of 2018.
The victim told investigators that he had been removed from the home and taken to his biological mother's home after Wilson's husband walked in on him touching Wilson in a sexual manner.
Wilson's husband told investigators they gave the victim $200 dollars and told him to lie about the sexual relationship. He also says they gave the victim a cell phone to communicate about keeping their stories straight.
Wilson turned herself into authorities in June of 2019 and was booked into the Washoe County Jail.
In addition to jail time, Wilson will be placed on probation, and faces two to five years in prison if she violates it. She must also register as a sex offender.
