Notorious Stepmom Sex Scandal Case Defendant Sentenced to Probation


Michelle Almonte-DeJesus, 27-year-old woman from Grand Island, Nebraska, who pleaded no contest to sexual assault charge in March has been sentenced to no jail for engaging in sex with her 15-year-old stepson.

Almonte-DeJesus will have to register as a sex offender and will spend five years on probation. She was also ordered that she not have a cell phone and have limited access to the internet.

As a result of the plea deal made with prosecutors, charges of incest, child pornography and creating obscene material against Almonte-DeJesus were dropped. According to records, the boy, who was 15 when sexual relationship with his stepmother began and turned 16 in June 2012, reported three incidents of first-degree sexual assault, eight incidents of incest, three incidents of consenting to child pornography and two incidents of creating obscene material.

While Michelle Almonte-DeJesus could have gotten 50 years in prison, Judge William Wright said in court last week he opted not to give her jail-time saying the boy might have been the one to instigate the sex acts. When the prosecuting attorney questioned whether this was a double standard,  the judge told him the sentence is similar to one of his prior cases involving a man. Hall County's Deputy Attorney Jon Hendricks said this case involved a family member. "To me that was one of the most horrendous aspects of this was. She was supposed to be a mother-figure to him and taking care of him-raising him. And it's just a different dynamic. And to me it just appears she took advantage of this child."


Victims father Enrique Almonte-DeJesus Jr. says he suspected something illicit was going on with his wife and son after he thought he saw them kissing one day, so he came up with a plan to catch them red-handed. “One day prior, I went downstairs and I saw them kissing, sitting on the couch,” he said. “I had my doubts, and I acted as if I was going to work, and I returned and found them having sex in my home.” According to court documents,  the woman and the 15-year-old traded nude photos of each other via cell phone and began having sex in January of last year.
