GRANADA HILLS : Woman Gets Probation for Having Sex With 10 Boys

July 21, 1992

A 40-year-old Granada Hills woman was sentenced on Monday to five years' probation for having sex with 10 teen-age boys, prompting the prosecutor to complain that women who commit sex crimes with minors are not punished as rigorously as men.

"If this was a man he absolutely would have gone to state prison," said Deputy Dist. Atty. Craig Richman.

Faye D. Abramowitz faced a maximum sentence of 7 years and 8 months in prison after pleading no contest Monday in San Fernando Municipal Court to three counts of lewd conduct with a child and five counts of oral copulation with a minor.

According to court records, Abramowitz invited boys ages 14 to 16 to a house she rented in Granada Hills and served them alcoholic drinks while showing them sex videos and then engaging in sex with them. The incidents happened regularly for about a year until one boy told an adult, and police were called in April.
