DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A Davenport woman has been sentenced to a suspended five-year prison sentence and placed on three years’ probation for the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old boy.

The Quad-City Times reports (https://bit.ly/2niBs9b ) that 33-year-old Tabatha Jo Howard also must register as a sex offender, according to a sentencing order filed Thursday.

Howard pleaded guilty in January to lascivious acts with a child, which carries a penalty of up to five years in prison. In exchange for her plea, prosecutors dismissed two counts of third-degree sexual abuse.

Prosecutors say Howard began a relationship with and performed sex acts on the boy sometime between February and July 2016.
