West Chester woman admits to sex charge involving a minor

Beth Ann Manning, 39, of the 7900 block of Victory Court, was indicted in July on five counts of sexual battery, a third-degree felony.

FIRST REPORT: West Chester woman indicted on sex charges

Last week, Manning, who has been free on her own recognizance, entered the guilty plea in Butler County Common Pleas Court to one count, and the other four charges were dismissed, according to court records.

Assistant Butler County Prosecutor Kelly Heile said the crime involved sexual touching of a 17-year-old boy. The indictment said Manning had sexual conduct with the juvenile between May 1 and May 16.

Manning remains free until sentencing that was set by Judge Greg Howard March 6. She faces up to 60 months in prison.
