A 24-year-old Toledo woman who entered a plea to child endangering for having sexual contact with a 14-year-old boy was sentenced yesterday to six months in the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio.
Alexa Grover of 401 Harring ton Drive had entered an Alford plea to the charge Aug. 26 in Lucas County Common Pleas Court. As part of the negotiated plea, a felony charge of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor was dismissed. Authorities said Ms. Grover had a sexual relationship with a teenage boy she knew between June and August, 2008.
Judge Linda Jennings sentenced Ms. Grover to the maximum sentence. In an Alford plea, the defendant maintains innocence or does not admit committing a crime. The court treats it as a guilty plea.
