A former Greeley teacher's aide convicted of having sex with her 14-year-old student was sentenced to 18 years to life in prison. The Greeley Tribune reports 26-year-old Jerica Enriquez was sentenced yesterday. She had worked at Jefferson Junior High School in Greeley. Enriquez, who recently gave birth to a girl while incarcerated, asked the court for the minimum sentence, saying she didn't want to miss the milestones of her daughter's life. She also acknowledged her criminal actions and apologized to the victim's family.

Enriquez was accused of taking advantage of her position as a role model to lure the victim, who is not being identified because he is a minor, into a sexual relationship in October 2016.
