Woman gets 5 years for sexual battery

COLUMBUS, Miss. —  

A Lowndes woman has been sentenced to five years in prison for having sex with two teenagers.

A jury found 35-year-old Christy McGough guilty Thursday of two counts of sexual battery. Circuit Judge Lee Howard sentenced her to concurrent 10-year sentences but suspended five years of each term. That means she'll serve five years.

She also will be on post-release supervision for five years.

Prosecutors say the two teenagers told authorities they had sex with McGough in her home in the spring of 2011. They were each 15 at the time. One of the alleged victims was living with the McGough.

McGough was arrested in May of 2011 after the two teens were found at her home after she checked them out of school.
