After statutory rape, woman living with victim

Friday, September 11, 2009

A Lewisburg woman who pleaded guilty to the aggravated statutory rape of a 17-year-old boy earlier this year was recently caught living with her victim.

Kathy Mai McKinney, 29, was sentenced to four years probation, with no contact with the victim for one year, starting March 18, 2009. She served 120 days in jail.

Last week, Detectives Keith Jolley and Bart Fagan of the Marshall County Sheriff's Department visited a residence on Sam Simpson Road, accompanied by probation officer Chris Hill.

According to Jolley's report, Hill "suspected" McKinney was living with her victim.

"Upon arrival both subjects were found to be living at the residence and (the young man) admitted they were living together," wrote Jolley.

McKinney was arrested and charged with violation of the sex offender residence restriction. Her bond was set at $6,000.

She was in court Wednesday, and Judge Robert Crigler accepted her affidavit of indigency and ordered the public defender's office to represent her. McKinney is due back in court on Sept. 23.
