LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- A California woman has been sentenced to six years in prison for having sex with one of her son's 12-year-old friends, officials say.

Patricia Ann Serrano, 45, pleaded guilty last month to three felony counts of performing lewd acts on a child under 14, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

Authorities said the Orange County woman sent sexual text messages to the boy and had sex with him twice in October 2011.

The victim's mother called police after she found her son in a locked room with Serrano, prosecutors said.
