(ABC 6 NEWS) -- An Austin woman who plead guilty to sexually abusing a young boy is sentenced to probation.

35-year-old Lisa Espe previously used a "norgaard plea." That means she admits to the sex act, but cannot recall the facts due to intoxication or amnesia. As part of her plea, a more serious sexual assault charge was dropped.

Espe was sentenced to 25 years of probation. The victim was a boy younger than 13.
