Woman Pleads Guilty to Raping Boy

(Albion, New York) A 30-year-old Medina woman, Linda Christopher, was arrested for engaging in sex with a 16-year-old boy. She was arraigned on May 1st and has been held in Orleans County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail, later reduced to $5,000. On Monday of this week, Christopher pleaded guilty in Orleans County Court to third-degree rape.

According to court records, the investigation began when the victim, now 17, went to the Medina Police station with his mother, who had a letter written by Christopher to the victim. District Attorney Joseph Cardone previously said he could not say how Christopher and the victim knew each other because of the boy's age and the nature of the case.
Christopher is scheduled to be sentenced on September 18th. With the guilty plea, she faces up to four years in state prison and registration as a sex offender.
