According to The Knoxville News Sentinel, McCarter was originally looking at 38 years in the slammer but got a much better deal by pleading guilty to multiple statutory rape charges before the trial. Details on Kelsey’s actions with the teenager:
Kelsey McCarter and the 16-year-old sophomore player had sex in her home and in her care over multiple times between Feb. 1, 2015, and Dec. 31, including when she was driving him to his mother’s house to move back in with his family, prosecutors said.
She also once sent him a topless video of herself, prosecutors said.
The boy’s mother said last year the abuse happened while her son and his older brother were living with the McCarters.
If you’re wondering why this kid and his brother were living with the McCarters, the couple took them in in an effort to sort out “behavioral problems”.
