Monroe County woman avoids jail on sex charge
COLUMBUS (WCBI) – A Smithville woman is sentenced to five years probation on a sex battery charge following a plea agreement in Lowndes County Circuit Court.
Shannan Brooke Thompson must also register as a sex offender, after reaching the plea bargain.
She was arrested in March 2015 after a family member reportedly found pictures on a cell phone.
At that time, investigators say Thompson and the victim met online and in person.
