A Davenport woman was sentenced this week to a suspended five-year prison sentence and placed on three years of probation in connection with the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old boy.

Tabatha Jo Howard, 33, also must register as a sex offender, according to a sentencing order filed Thursday.

She pleaded guilty in January to lascivious acts with a child, a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison. In exchange for her plea, prosecutors dismissed two counts of third-degree sexual abuse.

Prosecutors say Howard entered into a relationship with and performed sexual acts on the teen sometime between February and July 2016.
