Kimberly M. Page, 40-year-old convicted child sex offender from Viera, Florida, who was originally sentenced to 35 years in prison for having sex with a 14-year-old boy was re-sentenced last week to only 10 years in prison.
Page was first arrested March 2006 and charged with 12 counts of sexual battery for repeatedly engaging in sex with a 14-year-old boy. According to local police detectives Page, who was married with three children, would arrive at the boy's home and help him sneak out to have sex with her. The relationship became known when the boy started talking about it. Page also allegedly told the boy that she was going to leave her husband for him. Police conducted a controlled phone call between Page and the victim. In it, she allegedly told the boy she loved him.
Page's new attorneys successfully argued that her attorney at the time of the sentencing was ineffective for not accepting a plea deal, which would have resulted a shorter prison term. In 2008 she was sentenced to 37 years in prison on five charges. Last Friday, Page, who has served more than four years already, pleaded to the five charges of lewd and lascivious battery for a second time — this time according to agreed-upon terms with the State Attorney’s Office — and she was sentenced to 10 years in prison. With credit for time served, Page reportedly will be freed in 3.5 years. She will be allowed sentence reductions, and following her release, will be on 15 years of probation with sexual offender conditions.
