Fountain woman found guilty of incest gets jail time despite initial agreement

EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. -- Thursday, a judge changed a plea agreement that originally would have kept a Fountain woman who pled guilty to incest involving a young boy who "looked at her like a mother figure" out of jail. However, she's still only facing a few weeks of incarceration.

According to court documents obtained by KRDO, then-30-year-old Andrea Serrano confessed to her therapist that she was pregnant by a then-13-year-old boy in June 2022.

Officers arrested Serrano on July 5, 2022. She was booked into El Paso County Criminal Justice Center for two felony charges; Sexual Assault on a Child by One in a Position of Trust and Sexual Assault on a Child.


Thanks to a plea deal offered by the 4th Judicial District Attorney's Office in February, Serrano avoided the initial two felony charges and pled guilty to incest - a sentence that was meant to keep her out of jail.

This deal came despite pushback from the victim's mother who said Serrano isn't even a blood relative of the boy.

In February, the victim's mother, whom KRDO is not identifying, said she made it known to the DA's Office she wasn't okay with the plea deal.

"There's no blood relation, there should be no incest charge being allowed," the victim's mother said.

She believes prosecutors treated this case with a double standard.

"Had my son been a little girl, and had this been a 31-year-old man, they would be seeking incarceration, which they are not," she continued. "I don't think that (The 4th Judicial District Attorney's office) realizes that boy or girl, this is going to follow him for the rest of his life."

However, an El Paso County Judge still handed down a 90-day sentence, minus seven days for time served after her arrest.

Police said that Serrano confessed to the crime and claimed she was drunk at the time of the alleged assault.

The sentence includes at least ten years of sex offender intensive supervised probation and registration as a sex offender upon release from jail.

Court documents confirmed Serrano did become pregnant as a result of the unlawful sexual union and recently gave birth to the child.
