Sentencing delayed for woman who admitted to smoking pot, having sex with teen

Virginia Beach, Va. - A Virginia Beach mom is overwhelmed by feelings of hopelessness and disappointment as the former school security assistant who slept with her 15-year-old son, once again, freely walked out of court.

"I thought we were going to get closure after all this time but we still have to relive this in a year," she says.

NewsChannel 3 chose to withhold the mother’s name. She went to the Virginia Beach courthouse Wednesday hoping Patience Perez would get jail time for what she admitted to doing.

Instead, the judge delayed sentencing for another year. And that’s after a Norfolk judge last week also gave her a year to prove she doesn't need to go to jail.

“It's like victims don't have any rights anymore,” the teen’s mother says.

Prosecutors laid out the stipulation of evidence in a detailed document for the judge.

It states the 24-year-old initiated the relationship with the teen while she was working at Renaissance Academy.

Eventually, she started driving him to and from school and to and from her house in Norfolk.

There, prosecutors say, the two smoked pot and had sex while Perez's husband was at work and her two young children were upstairs asleep. They also had sex once at the boy’s home in Virginia Beach.

Prosecutors even provided naked photos she texted the teen. But none of that was enough to bring the judge to a decision just yet.

Surrounded by family and her attorney, Perez walked out of court with her head down.

Still inside, the teen's mother wore sunglasses to hide her tears.

Although she didn't hide the pain she feels knowing this isn't over yet.

"If the roles were reversed and it was an adult male in pursuit of a young female, he would have gotten prison time. Society needs to change their views," she says.

To take her fight even further, she says she started a petition.

“I'm circulating a petition with regards to how they handle cases such as my son's, and I beg of you please sign my petition so the laws can change so every predator that even thinks about pursuing a child gets life in prison.”

    this is disgusting. I stand by this mother. What if it were a male security officer and a female student? This is infuriating!!!!

  • DD

    To an extent I agree with the mom but did she know this security guard was picking her son up and taking him to school? What was done at that time because that is very odd behavior. As a parent, that should have been a red flag.

    • Honestly....

      Good point, Barry. At fifteen, he is definetly old enough to know better, though admittedly the greater burden of guilt lies on the shoulders of the adult in the situation. Maybe his mother should be exploring her own role in all this?

  • Honestly....

    And what is wrong with her husband? Why is he standing by her side, wagging his tail like a good little puppy? Holding the hand of someone whom another source reported once discussed killing him….He makes me as sick as she does. Be a man and (figuratively) kick her to the curb, dude! There are many women just as hot, without the crazy.
    And sorry, but the school was asking for trouble, hiring someone only a few years older than the students to be in a supervisory position over them. Not that they should be held liable, but it’s something that should have been considered. The maturity level of someone in their twenties is not that different from an older teen anyway, and when you stir a little bit of wackadoo into the mix, well, there you go.

    For all of you that think I’m trying to get my 15 minutes of fame; I didn’t teach my child any different; and I’m doing this because I have nothing better to do with my time, shame on you. I have been an advocate for children half of my life. This is who I am. I am a proud mother of four. Two of which joined the military, as I am in the military myself. I’m fighting for justice for my son and other children that are afraid to come forward and have endured this horrific injustice. I will continue to fight until my last breath became someone has to and GOD has entrusted me with this task. Say what you want, but I’m going to continue my fight for justice.

  • Seriously

    It wouldn’t be such a big deal if he picked her up at a high school party. Get control of your teenage son. It’s obvious you don’t have any since he’s at the renaissance academy. Such and outrage…whatever. He’s not a victim. He’s old enough to consent and that’s why I stand by the judges. This kids mom is off her rocker. I’ll pray that you see the injustice of how you feel. Your son and you are both just as at fault as the 22 year old. Yes. 22. Just old enough to start her partying years. Get it together.

    No one knows the real story. The mom on here is being over dramatic. Yes it was very wrong for this 22 year old but this mother son is no angel himself. You can’t judge this person nor can you judge anyone by what they have done.

  • Sheila

    Can’t believe people are blaming the Mom over this. This woman was in an adult job to protect children. She is the blame, let only doing this with her children in the home. So the boy may have been at the Academy for other reasons than being “bad”. Stop spiculating and look at the fact that the woman who did this was wrong. That is a fact.

    These kinds of doors can be managed from a remote or else you can have a code away from home to put in by hand.
    Programming your Homelink works essentially the same way.
    Take a measurement of the garage door width and height.

    If boys can get over it – like someone mentioned in this forum, Then so should teenage girls. The law is the law and it should apply to both genders. Women and girls have been getting away murder for way too long. If you want equally, then welcome to the real world.

    The same IDIOT judge would have given her primary custody of her two children if her husband would have divorced her. The same IDIOT judge would make the 15 year old pay her CS if a pregnancy occurred. The law is the law. The judge didn’t follow it and needs to be removed.
