Sarpy County woman sentenced for child sex assault
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A Sarpy County woman was sentenced Monday to 64-102 years in prison for sexual assault of a child and 10 other charges.
Christina Greer, 38, was convicted on March 10 on three counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child, two counts of witness tampering and six counts of child abuse, according to the Sarpy County Attorney’s Office.
Court documents showed that Greer had sleepovers at her home, gave children marijuana edibles and groomed two boys — ages 12 and 13 at the time — to have sex with her.
“Having sex with an adult female is thought of, that’s the cool kid of the group. It’s just not the case in these situations. They’ve been bullied, transferred schools multiple times. It’s just unfortunate they have to continue to deal with it,” said Sarpy County Deputy Attorney, Phil Kleine.
Police arrested Greer after a report was made that she was having sex with one of the boys from September 2017 to December 2017. In January 2019, another boy came forward with similar allegations. That August, a child enticement charge was added to Greer’s list of charges. Her trial was delayed several times mainly due to defense requests.
“Now our victims are 15, 16 years old. One of them just got a driver’s license. Now they’re going to have to deal with this rest of their lives. Any relationship will have trust issues due to what she did to them, said Kleine.
In court today, Greer sobbed through her statement, saying she’s “so ashamed and sorry” for what happened. And that as a mom, it’s her duty to protect her children, saying she “failed.”
At sentencing, the judge said Greer left a “wake of destruction” for the victims and their families. The boys, he said, “lost their childhood” because of her.
“She groomed them. She formed emotional relationships with kids to take advantage of them,” said Kleine.
Her attorney told the court he thought 15 years in prison was an appropriate sentence. The judge clearly disagreed.
Greer will be in her early 80s by the time she’s eligible for parole in 2068.
