Jenna Van Delden Admits Sex Acts with 13-year-old Boy

Jenna Van Delden, 25-year-old woman from Great Falls, Montana, who was arrested in January for an alleged sexual relationship with 13-year-old boy, has pleaded guilty to one count of sexual intercourse without consent, one count of custodial interference, and one count of tampering with evidence.

In exchange for her guilty plea, Van Delden entered into a non-binding agreement calling for 10 years with the Department of Corrections, with five of those years suspended.

The prosecution says that jail staff recently seized a letter from Van Delden drafted to the victim telling him that she wants to run away with him to Virginia. The 13-year old victim in this case was residing at a youth home, until two weeks ago when police say he ran away.

The 25-year-old woman was initially charged for allegedly allowing a 13-year-old runaway boy to stay with her and was later she was arrested again to face  additional charges of sexual intercourse without consent. n addition to charges of endangering the welfare of a child and custodial interference for allegedly allowing the runaway boy to stay with her for four months, Van Delden faced four felony charges of sexual intercourse without consent as well as tampering with evidence. Her Bond was set at $50,000 after court records indicated she bonded out of jail and attempted to contact the 13-year-old boy, who was  being held at the juvenile detention center for charges related to running away. Detention center officers wouldn’t let Van Delden speak with the boy.

Court records indicate she admitted to sleeping in the same bed as the boy and having sexual intercourse with him Dec. 4. According to the affidavit, detectives conducted a forensic interview with the boy, who admitted to having sex with Van Delden between 20 to 30 times in the past four months and gave specific information about Van Delden’s body that detectives describe could only be known through an intimate relationship.

Van Delden's estranged husband allegedly told detectives that when he and Jenna were separated, they were still living in the same house and Jenna was sleeping in the same bed as the teenage boy.
