Tammy Imre, the 30-year-old former secretary who engaged in sexual acts with an 8-year-old boy, was sentenced to 6 years in prison today. "I'm truly sorry for everything," Imre said in court. Imre was also given 10 years probation and will have to register as a sex offender.
"When this was first in the paper, it was almost a joke, because of the role reversal," prosecutor Cornelius Kelly said. "It conjures up thoughts of, 'Oh, that's a young man's dream.' But as we stand here today, we still don't know what damage this will have on the young boy's self-esteem, his interpersonal relationships. We don't know what damage the young girl suffered."
Imre's daughter, who witnessed some of the acts, is now in foster care, authorities said.
The boy's mother told the judge that Imre "has hurt a lot of innocent people, including her own daughter, who not only lost her mother but (also) her best friend, who was my son."
Defense attorney Donald Papcsy said Imre had been raped and has a mental problem that made it hard for her to understand that what she did was wrong.
"She's not a wicked person," he said.
This was no joke and she is a wicked person. This was an 8-year-old boy.
Imre was arrested on November 9, 2004. On November 16, 2004 it was revealed that she gave the boy long deep kisses and a bank statement was found written from Imre to the boy with the following written on the back of it.
"Baby, I loved what we did! ... Behind the tree, that shows me you love me. You know I love you! OK, I know we can't have - - - every single day, but! We should have some long kisses every day just to show that we love each othee [sic], OK? Can you promise me that and keep the promise! I love you!"
