Coral Lytle a Tulare, California mother who coerced her teen daughter’s underage boyfriends into having sex is spared jail after a judge decides against her recommended sentence.
A California mother who had sex with both of her teenage daughters’ boyfriends after plying them with alcohol and cigars has avoided jail after a Tulare judge reviewed her recommended sentencing recommendation on Monday.
Coral Annette Lytle, 41, seduced both boys, aged 14 and 15, in the fall of 2017, driving 15 miles from Tulare to Visalia for the illicit liaisons.
One of the victims said they had sex with the predator three times, the last time on October 5, 2017, but stopped the sordid meetings because of his guilt towards Lytle’s husband.
Coral Lytle was initially charged with 21 felony sex counts and faced a lengthy suspended prison sentence.
However, after reviewing her probation report, Judge Joseph Kalashian said he did not believe the recommended six-year suspended prison term with five years on probation was appropriate.
It remained unclear on what basis the judge decided the recommended sentencing was not ‘appropriate.’
Lytle, who is out of custody, can now withdraw her earlier guilty plea. A trial setting hearing will take place next Monday, April 22- KFSN-TV reported.
Lytle had agreed to plead guilty to 12 felony sex counts, including lewd acts upon a child and oral copulation in exchange for a sentence of probation and a suspended prison sentence.
‘Most of the time, when a court makes an indicated sentence, the probation report will follow the indicated sentence,’ said Tulare County Assistant District Attorney David Alavezos.
‘There are times the probation report will recommend a sentence that is not what was indicated.’
Coral Lytle exhibited grat cruelty and callousness:
As the case continues, court documents are revealing more about the mother’s alleged manipulation and sexual relationships with the two teenage boys.
Noted a filed court statement cited by ABC 7, ‘The crimes in this case committed by the defendant involved great cruelty and callousness,’
‘Especially considering the defendant took advantage of a position of trust to molest two boys who she met when they (were in) teenage dating relationships with the defendant’s daughters’.
A Tulare County Deputy District Attorney Prosecutors said Lytle provided alcohol and cigars to the alleged victims, both freshmen at Redwood High School at the time to coerce them into sex.
‘Victim stated this was the last time he had sex with Defendant because he felt bad shaking Defendant’s husband’s hand knowing what he was doing with Defendant,’ the court document continued.
Records show that Lytle’s husband filed divorce paperwork within days of her arrest.
