A light presentencing recommendation did little to affect the end result for Britney Rosenfield.Offered a chance to speak, Rosenfield wept and said, "I’m just, really sorry."
Rosenfield, 25, had already pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old boy in February, and had agreed to accept the state’s sentence cap of six to 14 years in prison.
At her sentencing hearing Wednesday morning, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Stensaas said although the presentencing investigation writer had recommended probation for Rosenfield, Stensaas still believed the previously agreed-upon sentence was appropriate.
Stensaas indicated that a double standard appeared to be in play because of Rosenfield’s gender.
“I have yet to see a recommendation like this where a male is the perpetrator,” he said. Stensaas additionally noted that the sexual intercourse had been occurring since the boy was 12.
