Lead Woman Pleads Guilty To Having Sex With Child

Deadwood, SD

A Lead woman has pleaded guilty to having sex with a 12-year-old boy.

Forty-two-year-old Staci Jo Graves is charged with four felony counts of first degree rape of a child under 13 years of age, and one count of solicitation of a minor.

The plea agreement calls for Graves to plead guilty to two felonies. She faces a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years.

Prosecutors say they are happy with the plea agreement because the victim will not have to testify.

Graves told a judge that she has a drinking problem and has been undergoing therapy. Her attorney says she suffers from depression and mental health issues.
