BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A transgender registered sex offender in Montana has pleaded guilty to raping a 15-year-old girl.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports https://goo.gl/TK63A8 28-year-old Aliea Rose Brown entered her plea Monday as part of a deal with prosecutors, who will recommend she be sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by five years of probation.

Investigators say the girl told them she thought the relationship was OK because she had her mother’s consent, while Brown acknowledged knowing it was illegal. The age of consent in Montana is 16.

Brown, who was previously known as Albert Brown, had been living in the same house with the girl, her mother and the mother’s boyfriend. Prosecutors say the girl’s mother knew Brown was a sex offender.
