Denise Harvery of Vero Beach, Florida, received a 30-year sentence after being found guilty of having sex with her son's 16-year-old friend. The victim testified that he and Harvery had sex five times. In cooperation with the police, he agreed to wear a wire to record a meeting with Harvery. During that meeting Harvery made reference to their relationship.
According to a court transcript, Harvery said, "You don't have to worry about me. Cause I'm, I'm denying everything. I have to. I can't...I mean I can get into huge trouble."
Harvery was offered a plea deal where she would spend 11 years in state prison, but she refused. In August, a jury found her guilty and the judge sentenced her to 30 years.
