-- A woman who authorities said
had sex with high school boys during
alcohol- and drug-fueled parties
has been sentenced to 30 years in
prison, officials said.
Silvia Johnson, 41, described herself
to investigators as a "cool
mom" who "was never popular
with classmates in high school"
and who was beginning to feel like
one of the group.
She pleaded guilty in July to two
misdemeanor counts of sexual assault
and nine felony counts of contributing
to the delinquency of a minor.
She also was sentenced for additional
charges of third-degree assault,
violation of a restraining order
and harassment for unrelated cases
involving her husband and children,
prosecution spokesman Carl Blesch
Authorities said Johnson held parties
for the boys almost weekly between
October 2003 and October 2004. They
said Johnson provided drugs and
alcohol to eight boys and had sex
with five of them.
Johnson was to be sentenced on September
26, but the hearing was postponed
after she was injured the day before
while riding in an SUV that veered
off an interstate.
