A 30-year-old Lincoln woman has been given 18 months of probation for having sex with her former foster child.
The woman was sentenced Tuesday for child abuse.
At a trial in May, the now 20-year-old man said he was 15 when he moved in with the woman and her husband in 2008. She became his legal guardian about a year later. He says she kissed him one day in 2010, then had sex the next night.
Her lawyer argued the subsequent two-year relationship was consensual. The prosecutor said the woman put the teenager in a situation that endangered his life or physical or mental health by sexually abusing him.
The woman's name is not being used to protect the man's identity.
