Ohio Woman Gets Prison for Sex Crimes

(Lebanon, Ohio) In July 2008, married teacher and group home housemother Carolynn Hatcher was charged with multiple counts of felony sexual battery for allegedly engaging in sex with a 16-year-old boy with whom she became pregnant.

In September 2008, Carolynn Hatcher pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual battery.

Today, 26-year-old Carolynn Hatcher was sentenced to three years in prison, one year for each conviction.
The boy was placed in Hatcher’s care at Midwestern Children’s Home following abuse by his birth family, prosecutors said.

“Ms. Hatcher was put in a position to protect a young man that had been abused, and rather than protect him she took advantage of him,” said Warren County Prosecutor Rachel Hutzel.
Hatcher was also ordered to register as a sex offender and spend five years under community control.

Prosecutors said that Hatcher seduced the boy because she was having marital problems. Not mentioned was the real possibility that the marital problems might have been caused by the fact that she was seducing the boy. Despite the reason, Hatcher is still a criminal.
