Woman sentenced in underage-sex case

October 10, 2013

ELKHORN — A 37-year-old woman who had sex with two 15-year-old boys last September in her Sharon apartment will spend the next three years on probation.

Rachael A. McCormick, now 38 and of East Troy, was also sentenced to six months in jail with work-release privileges, and she will have to register as a sex offender for the next 15 years.

McCormick was initially charged with two counts of sexual assault of a child under the age of 16, Class C felonies each punishable by 40 years imprisonment. However, through a plea agreement, the charges were reduced to two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and two felony charges of exposing a child to harmful materials, both Class I felonies that are punishable by up to 3 1/2 years imprisonment each.

On Sept. 29, 2012, which was the night of the high school’s homecoming dance, four juvenile boys were at McCormick’s home. McCormick began consuming raspberry vodka and Jagermeister, and by her account and witness accounts, she became intoxicated.

Eventually, McCormick and one of the 15-year-olds went into a bedroom and had sex. That same night McCormick had sex with another 15-year-old boy.
