CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Chambersburg woman who had a sexual relationship with her daughter's boyfriend over a two-year period was sentenced to five years on probation Wednesday in Franklin County Court.

Judge Douglas W. Herman fined her $750, ordered her to perform 50 hours of community service and to pay $3,023 in restitution, about half of it for tuition for the boy, who transferred to a school outside the district when the charges were filed.

According to the affidavit of probable cause filed by Chambersburg police, the boy told police of the affair in December 2002. He said he began dating the woman's daughter in August or September 2000 and he became intimate with the mother within a couple of months, police records say.
