Woman gets suspended sentence for child seduction

Tricia D. Mallernee was arrested in May 2009 and charged with four felony counts of child seduction for allegedly having sex with a teen foreign exchange student more than 50 times from August 2008 through April 2009.

In July 2009 Judge Fredrick Spencer gave Mallernee a three-year suspended sentence on each of four counts of child solicitation. The judge gave Mallernee a one-year suspended sentence for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor.

All of the sentences will be served at the same and she must register as a sex offender. Mallernee, 32, now of La Fontaine in Wabash County, had pleaded guilty in Madison Circuit Court to four counts of child seduction, all Class D felonies carrying a standard four-year prison terms.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, Mallernee will be on probation for three years.
