The state Superior Court affirmed the prison sentence of a West Virginia woman who was found guilty in 2017 of raping an 11-year-old Greene County boy.

According to court documents, Kaitlyn Mackenzie Wolfe, 23, of Morgantown, had appealed last year her state prison sentence of 5 to 10 years, after four time extensions on the appeal.

One of the reasons for Wolfe’s appeal, according to court documents, was that the court didn’t allow the jury to hear her social worker testify about Wolfe’s intelligence and her IQ of 68. She also argued the suppression court erred when it denied the suppression of her confession, which she had made after invoking her right to an attorney, according to court documents.

In a memorandum, the Superior Court said the issues Wolfe raised in her appeal were “too vague,” and didn’t include the transcript from the suppression hearing.

Wolfe had sex with the boy on 15 occasions between July and September 2016 at the boy’s Wayne Township home, state police said. Police did not say how they were alerted to the assaults, but when they interviewed the boy he told them of the relationship.

In June 2017, Wolfe was convicted by a jury of three counts each of rape involving a person younger than 13, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, indecent exposure and indecent assault, and one count of corruption of a minor. She was sentenced by Greene County Judge Lou Dayich.
