FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Dunseith woman accused of sexually abusing a boy has been sentenced to six months in prison and six months of home confinement.

Raelynn Thiefoe pleaded guilty in March to a federal charge of sexual abuse of a minor. Authorities say she engaged in a sexual act last year with a boy between the age of 12 and 16.

In handing down the sentence, U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson said Thiefoe has a diminished learning capacity and is easily manipulated.

Thiefoe was ordered to undergo chemical dependency screening and treatment. Erickson says she must serve five years of supervised release.
