Baldwin PTA mom gets 6 months in child sex case
A former vice president of the Baldwin PTA was sentenced to six months in prison and 10 years probation today after being caught with a half-naked teen in a car.
Joan Tuckruskye, a 45-year-old mother of two, was arrested in the back of an SUV with a 13-year-old Baldwin Middle School student June 12, 2008.
At the time of the arrest in a school parking lot, Tuckruskye claimed she and the boy, who was her daughter's friend, were only kissing. In April of 2009, however, Tuckruskye pleaded guilty to criminal sex act.
In the courtroom today, Tuckruskye apologized for her actions before learning her fate.
Tuckruskye must also register with the state as a Level 1 sex offender.
