St. Charles woman sentenced to probation

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — A St. Charles woman accused of blackmailing her boyfriend over child sex abuse allegations has been sentenced to five years' probation.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 34-year-old Jennifer Callaway was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to concealing a felony. She was also ordered to undergo psychological and alcohol abuse evaluations and must have no unsupervised contact with minors.

Callaway was accused of coercing 45-year-old Raymond David Avett into giving her his home, SUV, boat and life insurance in exchange for not reporting the alleged abuse of a 6-year-old.

Avett's also charged with concealing a felony. St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar says Avett hasn't been charged with a sex crime because Callaway's failure to report the crime took away his office's ability to properly investigate the case.
