NEWTON, Iowa — A Newton woman who admitted to having sex with an underage teenage boy will not spend time in prison for her crime.

“One of the most scariest things in my life is hearing you’re under arrest. Definitely something at 21 you don’t want to hear.” But Tori Kaiser of Newton heard it after she admitted to having sex with a 14-year-old boy multiple times.

“We had been smoking marijuana and drinking and he told me he could do whatever he wanted and I told him he couldn’t. He kissed me and from there it just…it started this whole relationship,” Kaiser recalls. “I stayed with them for a week. We had sex multiple times. Then his parents were like ‘OK this needs to calm down.'”

Kaiser says the victim’s parents kicked him out, so he moved in with her at her Newton apartment complex. She says she knew what she was doing was wrong, but, “With all the drugs and the alcohol in my system I didn’t care,” Kaiser said. “I’m gonna be honest, people told me all the time you’re gonna get caught and you gotta stop and I’m like no. I felt like I was on top of the world. I didn’t care at the time.”

Until authorities showed up. “Everything went to crap when DHS came in with the cops and they took him out of my house and like two weeks later they came in and told me, well, we’re charging you,” Kaiser said. “I was like I’m going to be honest with you. I’m done with this lying. And I’m like I’ll take my punishment. I know what I did was wrong. I shouldn’t have done anything like that.”

This week, Kaiser took a plea deal that will keep her out of prison, but she will be on probation for two years and on the sex offender registry for life. She faced up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Jasper County Attorney Mike Jacobson refused to answer any of our questions on camera, but off camera he tells us he believes the outcome is fair. He says in this case the sex was consensual and that Kaiser just made a stupid mistake.

Kaiser agrees, and says she’s grateful for what she sees this as an opportunity. One she says she will not squander. “I don’t hang out with all the kids that I was hanging out with. I mean I was 21 and hanging out with 14-year-olds. That’s not right. And I’ll work hard,” Kaiser said. “I’ve stayed away from drugs and alcohol. I just feel like this has turned me into a better person.”
