EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Cottage Grove woman has been given a 10-day jail sentence after admitting that she had sex with her 16-year-old neighbor last summer.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/2dK3ALX ) that 27-year-old Jessica Jane Bennett was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor. She has the option of avoiding jail time by participating in an alternate program such as road crew or community service.

Authorities began investigating Bennett in July after the teen’s father contacted the Lane County Sheriff’s Office to report that the woman was naked in the boy’s bed.

Bennett allegedly admitted to authorities that she and the teen had sex multiple times that day. She said she knew the teen was underage and realized she had made a bad decision.
