Naughty neighbor gets probation for statutory rape

Felicia Rickett, 22-year-old woman from Cookeville, Tennessee, has pleaded guilty to engaging in sex with a 16-year-old boy. As a result, she will be on probation for two years.

Last summer police officers received allegations that young boys and others had been smoking marijuana in a N. Dixie Avenue residence. When they went there to investigate, they found Rickett in bed in a middle of a sex act with the boy. Once in custody, Rickett admitted to detectives she had been having sexual relations with the teen for about six months, and charges were filed against her last July. In exchange for Rickett's guilty plea, a two-year sentence for statutory rape was suspended.

Rickett will be on judicial diversion probation for a period of two years and must be on the state's sex offender registry during that time, Craighead said.

As part of the agreement, Rickett is required to be gainfully employed, to pay the "sex offender tax/fine" required in state law, to notify authorities of any change in her residential address or employment, and to pay probation supervision fees and court costs.
