Georgia Woman Gets Prison for Sex with Boy, 13


Dana Marie Adams, 33-year old woman from Augusta, Georgia, who was  accused of having sex with 13-year-old boy has been convicted of molesting a 13-year-old boy

At fer  the teen boy testified that he initially refused to tell his mother the truth about the woman who had sex with him when he was 13 because he didn’t want Dana Adams to get into trouble. He said he had known her his whole life. Adams often let him and his cousin hang out at her home and she would pay him if he did a chore even she knew he intended to buy marijuana with the cash. At one point in the fall of 2011 during a 24-hour period they performed sex acts on each other and he said he had sexual intercourse several times with Adams before she gave him the money and drove him to meet a man who sold him marijuana.

After she dropped him off at his home the next day, the teen testified his mother and her live-in boyfriend noticed a mark on his neck and questioned him. He lied to protect Adams, the teen testified. Some months later he told both of his parents about having sex with Adams, and his father took him to the sheriff’s department to talk with a detective.

Dana Adams pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated child molestation, child molestation, and contributing to the delinquency of minor. She testified that she committed no crimes during a weekend in fall 2011 when a young male relative and the boy spent the weekend at her home - the allegations against her were made up in revenge because she reported to the sheriff’s department that the boyfriend of the alleged victim’s mother stole her debit card during a January 2012 visit to her home. The man threatened her, Adams testified, that if he was arrested the boy would say she molested him.
She had allowed the boy to spend weekends at her home occasionally so he could spend time with a young male relative of hers, Adams testified. The last time the alleged victim stayed, in the fall of 2011, nothing unusual happened, she said. The boys played video games, ate pizza and socialized with a couple of friends and a neighbor.

Adams begged the judge not to send her to prison, but Judge J. David Roper explained that he had no choice. The mandatory minimum sentence for child molestation is 25 years in prison. He imposed that and added two additional years’ incarceration for the misdemeanors.
