Cynthia Kusy gets 10 years in prison for sex crimes

Cynthia Kusy, 47-year-old married mother from Knoxville, Tennessee, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting a then 15-year-old Grand Forks boy in April 2011.

Kusy initially met the teen boy online through the game Wizard 101 in November 2010. Between March 15 and April 12, they started talking about sex online, at one point discussing if they should wait until he turned 18. But Kusy decided she could not wait until it would be legal to have sex with her young friennd and  traveled to Grand Forks, North Dakota,  April 14 and rented room 138 at the Travelodge Hotel. That night, she bought alcohol that the two drank and  had sex with the boy over three days.

In July 2012 Kusy was convicted of sex with a minor by a jury deliberating for less than an hour. The trail of often racy Internet messages between Kusy and the boy convinced them of her guilt, especially because the messages indicated she was aware of his age. The jury convicted Kusy of two counts of sexual assault of a minor and one count of luring a minor sexually over the Internet. All are class C felonies that each carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Kusy attempted to blame the victim, who was described in court as a vulnerable teen with a low IQ and emotional problems, and his mother for not taking better care of him.

District Judge Debbie Kleven also sentenced Kusy to five years for luring a minor over the Internet, but suspended that sentence. Kusy will get five years of supervised probation after she gets out of prison.

When asked by the judge “Would you want someone to do that to your son?”, Kusy, who is mother of 14-year-old boy, answered "“No, of course not”. During her trial Kusy denied having sex with the boy, and told the court "There is no evidence he was even in the building,” of the boy being at the motel with her. The Judge answered that there was plenty of evidence.

Kusy pleaded during the sentencing hearing the Judge to allow her to get sex offender treatment in Knoxville, with five years probation and no time behind bars.
