Woman admits to molesting Filipino boy she wanted to adopt

43-year-old Wilmington, North Carolina resident Christy Lynn Jaski was sentenced on Tuesday, August 9 to three years of probation and was ordered to register as a sex offender for the next 30 years. The sentencing comes after Jaski made a guilty plea to three counts of misdemeanor sexual battery in relation to allegedly abusing a teenage boy she was adopting from the Philippines.

Jaski’s family includes four daughters, two of whom are adopted from China, a report from StarNews of Wilmington showed. The report did not specify if Jaski will be allowed to make contact with her own children. Prosecutor Lance Oehrlein said in an interview with The Associated Press that the incident occurred sometime between December 2014 and January 2015. The abused boy was 13 at the time of the incident. Jaski was arrested last year.
