WARREN CO., OH (FOX19)-- A Warren County woman will spend three years in prison for having sex with a minor that had been placed in her care.

26-year-old Carolyn Hatcher was sentenced today in a Warren County Court of Common Pleas. In September, she pleaded guilty to three counts of Sexual Battery after having sex with a 16-year-old teen.

Hatcher worked in a Children's Home in Pleasant Plain. The teen was placed in her care after he had been abused by his parents.

Along with the three years prison sentence, Carolyn Hatcher will also have to serve five years of post release control and will be labeled a Tier 3 sexual predator.

Warren County Prosecutor Rachel Hutzel says, "We asked for the minimum sentence in the case. 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."
