California mother who had sex with daughters' teenage boyfriends faces four years in prison after pleading guilty
Coral Lytle, 42, faces a minimum of four years in prison after she pleaded guilty to 21 felony offenses on Tuesday
TULARE, CALIFORNIA: A California mother is facing at least four years behind bars after she pleaded guilty to having sex with two teenage boys.
Coral Lytle, 42, faces a minimum of four years in prison after she pleaded guilty to 21 felony offenses on Tuesday. The offenses include having sexual intercourse, oral copulation and showcasing porn to a child. She also pleaded guilty to giving alcohol and tobacco to one of the victims and two teen girls.
Hailing from Visalia in California, Lytle's spree of offenses began in September 2017 when she allegedly molested a 15-year-old boy. After that, she allegedly engaged in sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old boy in October 2017.
Lytle would meet the teenagers in parking lots and parks. Sometimes she would even pick them up from their houses before taking them back to her house for sexual intercourse.
In one such incident, the teen snuck out of his house late at night and was picked up by Lytle. She then took him back to her place where he was sexually abused. She dropped him back at his place by 5 am in the morning before his parents woke up.
The victims of her abuse were all students from Redwood High School in Visalia and were her daughters' friends.
According to Visalia Times Delta, Lytle's husband Eric has since divorced her. During the course of her abuse spree, she used to work as a masseuse.
Apart from blaming her behavior on her issues with low self-esteem, Lytle also blamed the death of her sister, which she claims sent her into a fit of depression.
Her sexual abuse crimes came to light after one of the boy's parents found nude pictures of Lytle that she had sent to their son's phone. The parents then contacted the cops, and in April, Lytle had been offered a plea deal by the court. The father of the 16-year-old also told the cops that Lytle used to buy his child alcohol and drugs.
The plea deal would see Lytle face six-years of suspended jail time, which means she wouldn't have to be behind the bars, only if she admits to the crimes done by her.
However, after reading Lytle's probation report and figuring out every minute detail about the abuse, the presiding judge, Joseph Kalashian, ditched the plea deal that was offered by the court.
Lytle, who used to go under the surname Blain prior to her divorce with Eric, is currently out on bail.
According to preliminary reports, she could currently face a minimum of four years in prison when her sentencing takes place on November 4.
