Wilmington - A North Carolina woman has pleaded guilty to sex charges involving a 14-year-old boy who her family was in the process of adopting from the Philippines.

The StarNews of Wilmington reports 43-year-old Christy Lynn Jaski pleaded guilty on Tuesday to three counts of misdemeanour sexual battery. She was sentenced to three years of probation and must register as a sex offender for 30 years.

Prosecutor Lance Oehrlein says Jaski kissed and groped the boy sometime between December 2014 and January 2015.

Oehrlein says Jaski also sent messages to a friend in the Philippines admitting she had kissed the child. She was arrested in February 2015.

Jaski's attorneys say Jaski hasn't had any contact with the boy since he was removed from the Jaski family's home and placed in another state.
