CASPER — A Casper woman pleaded not guilty Wednesday to sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy.

Britney Rosenfield, 25, stood before Natrona County District Judge David Park, and through her attorney requested to waive a reading of the official charges.

Park declined and advised Rosenfield that she was facing one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor.

According to the defendant’s arrest affidavit, Rosenfield reported to Casper police that she had been engaging in sexual intercourse with the boy since August. She was accompanied by her husband and mother as she filed the report.

Rosenfield reportedly told officers she had sex with the boy about five or six times at her residence.

The boy elaborated on the encounters through an interview with the Child Advocacy Project, according to court documents. He said the incidents occurred in several rooms of Rosenfield’s house, including the living room, the defendant’s bedroom and the laundry room. He said the first time the two had sexual contact was actually July 5 and the most recent time was Oct. 16.

If convicted, Rosenfield could face up to 50 years in prison for first-degree sexual abuse and up to 20 years for second-degree sexual abuse. She is currently being held on a $50,000 bond.

If a man had done this to a girl,he would already be hung or electrocuted. The key words here are "if convicted".

In Saudi Arabia, maybe. Can't remember a time someone was executed before the arraignment in Wyoming... or even in Georgia.

There is obviously a LOT more to this story than anybody is telling the public.

I'll bet he really felt "assaulted".

The absurdity of a system of law that ignores consent of participants in sex based entirely upon their age when they are obviously well into puberty and have their own sexual desires is patent. For a "crime" like this to be "rape" or "sexual assault" in any legitimate sense, there must be force, or coercion of some sort.......... More and more we are seeing this sort of prosecution and it is not even remotely rational. It is an expression of an absurd puritanism that serves nobody, and makes America a laughingstock among civilized nations. There can be little doubt that many of us reading this had our first sexual experience below the age of consent with someone older than ourselves and for the most part do NOT feel "abused" by the "coming of age" experience. We soon will find half the population labeled "sex offender"! Perhaps they will attempt to regulate adult behavior setting an "age disparity limit", and start prosecuting people who violate it!

Wrong, Howard. Curb your own lusts and try to picture the difference between your objects of desire and an actual child. How self centered are you to think that you get to tell everybody else that your definition of the law is different than reality. Aren't there specific online sites and clubs for your kind?

Howard~ she is 25 and he is 13!!!! He is a CHILD!!!! Even IF this was a result of his desire she is an adult and should know better!!! There is nothing about a 13 yr old child that should be sexually desirable to a grown adult!!
