A Tulare County Deputy District Attorney Prosecutors stated in court: “Especially considering the defendant took advantage of a position of trust to molest two boys who she met when they (were in) teenage dating relationships with the defendant’s daughters.”
Originally, Lytle was facing at least six years in prison and five years probation as she was charged with 21 felony counts of sexual misconduct, but the judge presiding over the case felt differently.
In March 2019, Lytle accepted a plea deal that would keep her out of prison but with 5 years of probation, one year in county jail and a suspended six-year prison sentence if she broke her probation.
On April 15, however, the judge presiding over the case felt that the plea deal was inappropriate and delayed her sentencing. She will now have a chance to change her plea before a new trial is scheduled to begin on April 22.
