A woman who was having sex with her adopted son will spend time in prison.

Wednesday, Lauren Myres, 26, was sentenced to six years in prison for one count of unlawful sexual activity with certain minors. She will then be placed on sex offender probation for four years and will have to complete sex offender counseling. She cannot have contact with the victim or any minors.

Myres entered a plea of "No Contest" to the charge last week.

In May 2018, law enforcement got a tip about an inappropriate relationship between Myres and the 17-year-old victim. Myres was a caseworker for Families First Network, who originally had been assigned the victim as a child she was to assist. She eventually decided to foster the child, then adopted him. After the adoption was finalized, it was discovered Myres and the victim were having sex. Myres and the victim told law enforcement they had sex multiple times over a two month period.

Myres will be designated as a sexual offender and will have to register as one for the rest of her life. The crime happened in Okaloosa County.
