BARTLESVILLE, Okla. – A 26-year-old Oklahoma woman who drew worldwide attention after allegedly luring a teenage boy into a tanning booth has reached a deal in her case.

Betsy Brashear faced charges of lewd molestation after she was accused of luring a 15-year-old boy into a tanning booth, getting naked and kissing him.

Authorities say she was caught by the boy’s mother at a fitness center in Bartlesville.

The lewd molestation charges were dropped after Brashear pleaded no contest to a felony charge of indecent exposure.

As part of the deal, she received a three-year suspended sentence and will have to register as a sex offender.
