Britney Rosenfield Guilty of Sex with 13-year-old Boy

Britney Rosenfield, 25-year-old woman from Casper, Wyoming, who was arrested in November 2012 for sex with 13-year-old boy, and pleaded guilty to the charge of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor in February 2013 agreed to accept the state’s sentence cap of six to 14 years in prison.

Although the presentencing investigation writer had recommended probation for Rosenfield, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Stensaas said in hearing that he still believed the previously agreed-upon sentence was appropriate. Stensaas indicated that a double standard appeared to be in play because of Rosenfield’s gender.

“I have yet to see a recommendation like this where a male is the perpetrator,” he said. Stensaas additionally noted that the sexual intercourse had been occurring since the boy was 12.

District Judge David Park said he believed the six- to 14-year sentence was appropriate and agreed to uphold the recommendation. Rosenfield’s attorney, Jamie Woolsey, did not attempt renege on the plea agreement, but said her client was upset and wondered why she accepted the prescribed sentencing terms.

Rosenfield — who also goes by the last name Olsen — was originally charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a minor, one in the first degree, one in the second degree. The state agreed to drop the first-degree charge in exchange for her guilty plea on the second-degree charge. The maximum penalty for a conviction of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor is 20 years in prison. The maximum sentence is 50 years if the conviction is for a first-degree charge.

According to the affidavit, Britney Rosenfield said she had sex with the 13-year-old boy  between July and October of last year. The boy also confirmed the sexual encounters with the older woman. He said the incidents occurred in several rooms of Rosenfield’s house, including the living room, the defendant’s bedroom and the laundry room. Rosenfield reportedly also admitted to police she had performed sex acts with the teen boy about five or six times in her home. The first time the two had sexual contact was  July 5 2012 and the most recent time was Oct. 16 2012.
