A former city of Vacaville camp counselor convicted in May of having sex with a minor in her care was sentenced Monday to a year in jail and five years of probation.At the close of the proceedings, Herrador was taken to jail.
Katrina Herrador, 22, received credit for one day time served, as she had been out on bail since last August. She must also perform 50 hours of community service and pay more than $2,000 in restitution. She will not have to register as a sex offender.
In handing down his ruling, Solano County Superior Court Judge E. Bradley Nelson acknowledged both the victim's angry parents and the defendant, whose therapists had reportedly described her as immature and sheltered.
"This was a breach of trust," he said. "And every parent's worst nightmare."
Herrador was arrested last August after parents of a 14-year-old boy in her Teen XTreme summer camp spied a suspicious text message on their son's cell phone. It led them to believe he was involved in an "unlawful sexual relationship" with the woman, police said.
Detectives have said the then-21-year-old Herrador admitted to meeting the teen in Vacaville on July 28 and then driving them to her Fairfield home, where the alleged sexual assault took place.
In May, Herrador pleaded no contest to one charge of having sex with a minor and two counts of oral copulation of a minor under the age of 16.
