Brooke Lajiness, a 38-year-old Michigan mother, faces up 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to intercourse and oral sex with two underage boys.
Lajiness, 38, of Lima Township, Michigan, was accused of 13 counts of sexual conduct against a 14 and 15-year-old boy. On Monday, June 26, she confessed to two counts of having intercourse with the 14-year-old and one of having oral sex with the 15-year-old.
The majority of the exchanges are alleged to have occurred in the backseat of Lajiness’ car. According to court records, Lajiness is reported to have seduced the younger boy, who she admitted to having sex with as many as 15 times, by sending him nude selfies.
Lajiness was arraigned March 3 on 13 counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, one count of accosting a minor for immoral purposes and one count of furnishing obscenity to a child, district court records show.
In addition to the sex charges, Lajiness is accused of exchanging nude photographs with the 14-year-old, Michigan State Police Trooper Donald Pasternak testified at a March 3 hearing where he swore to the contents of the arrest warrant.
According to a transcript of that hearing, Pasternak told Magistrate A. Thomas Truesdell that the mother of the victim walked in to a Michigan State Police post a few weeks before March 3 to lodge a complaint about Lajiness having sexual relations with her son.
Furthermore, Lajiness, who has been married for 16 years, admitted one count each of accosting a child for immoral purposes and furnishing obscenity to children by sending nude photographs of herself to a minor. However, prosecutor John Vella said the other charges will be dismissed in a plea deal when she is sentenced in August.
If charged, Lajiness faces up to 19 years and 3 months in prison. She posted a $50,000 bond after her March 3 arraignment and is free while awaiting trial.
