Lajiness, who has been married to her husband David for 16 years, also admitted one count each of accosting a child for immoral purposes and furnishing obscenity to children by sending nude photographs of herself to a minor.
The other charges will be dismissed in a plea deal when she is sentenced in August, said prosecutor John Vella.
Lajiness. who started having sex with the 14-year-old last summer, could be jailed for up to 19 years and three months.
In a Facebook posted in February, Lajiness proclaimed her love for her husband David, saying: ‘In life, nothing is guaranteed,’
‘So finding someone who knows all of your flaws, weaknesses and mistakes and still thinks you’re amazing is something to hold onto and never take for granted!’
In another post the woman also wrote next to an image of her and her beaming husband, ‘I love this man so much’, with a heart sign.
Her affair with the teen boy allegedly began last summer, as he was graduating from middle school on to high school.
Michigan State Police Trooper Donald Pasternak testified that most of the sexual encounters happened in the back of Lajiness’ car in a Lima Township driveway.
At her arraignment on March 3, Pasternak testified that he started investigating Lajiness a few weeks before, when the victim’s mother walked into a police station and complained that Lajiness was having sex with her son.
Lajiness reportedly confessed later on to having sex with the teen and exchanging illicit pictures.
Police found that she started exchanging photos with the teen while he was still in middle school. The woman was facing an additional charge in relation to the photos.
Assistant Washtenaw County Prosecutor John Vella said last week that they are looking into whether they may be more victims.
Told Vela, ‘This case involves a defendant seeking out minors for sex’.
Lajiness’ attorney, David I. Goldstein, said prosecutors need to focus on the case at hand, adding: ‘He keeps talking about “minors”, but there’s one.’
Lajiness is currently free after posting $50,000 bail. As part of her bond conditions, Lajiness is not allowed near school property or around minors except for her own children.
She is also not allowed to use computers, social media websites or to drink alcohol or take drugs.
Attorneys argued in court over whether she should be allowed to travel to Toledo to visit her family while she’s free on bail.
The judge ruled that she should be free to travel there, so long as she lets the court know in advance.
To date authorities have yet to necessarily explain what led to the married mother sexually preying on her victims and using her dominance as an older mature woman to subjugate her male victims.
