HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

A former youth shelter worker in Hillsboro was sentenced to two months in jail after pleading guilty to sex abuse involving a teen boy at the shelter.

Danielle Adams, 28, pleaded guilty Friday to the charge of second-degree sex abuse.

Adams was indicted by a grand jury in November 2016. At the time, she also faced a charge of furnishing alcohol to a minor.

Police said Adams sexually abused a 17-year-old boy at Safe Place for Youth in Hillsboro, a shelter for homeless and at-risk youth that is operated by Boys and Girls Aid of Oregon.

Program administrators watched surveillance footage of the night in question and said Adams was fired immediately.

The victim’s mother told FOX 12 at the time of Adams’ arrest that the whole situation was disturbing.

“Before she provided the alcohol, before she engaged in sexual acts with him, she first befriended him," the woman said. “She first gained his trust and she used her education to do that. That takes it to a whole other level.”

Adams’ Facebook page said she was a psychology grad student at Pacific University.

After pleading guilty Friday, Adams was sentenced to two months in jail followed by five years supervised probation and she must register as a sex offender.
