An Omaha woman who was impregnated by a teenager faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading no contest Monday to third-degree sexual assault of a minor and child abuse.

Brianne McIntosh, 21, will be sentenced for both felonies Dec. 19 in Dodge County District Court. She faces up to five years in prison on each charge and will be required to register as a sex offender in Nebraska.

McIntosh admitted to having sex with a 13-year-old youth in May 2014 when she was 19, said Dodge County Attorney Oliver Glass. The youth, now 16, met McIntosh while he was sleeping over at a friend’s house in Hooper.

McIntosh originally was charged with first-degree sexual assault of a minor, but the charge was amended as part of a plea agreement. Glass said it’s likely McIntosh will receive prison time.

“Pleading to felonies that include time in prison is appropriate for this crime,” Glass said. “The person who commits this crime, whether male or female, I’m going to treat the same way.”

The child was born in February 2015 and is a ward of the state. He has been placed with his paternal grandmother, who is helping the young father raise him.
