The former night supervisor at a Joplin center for teens dealing with alcohol and drug abuse has been sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to statutory sodomy.

Forty five year-old Jana Carter, of Goodman, was originally charged with two counts of statutory rape and three counts of statutory sodomy for an October 2008 incident where she had sexual intercourse and performed oral sex with two boys, ages 16 and 14 at the Scott Greening Dependency Center. Another 16 year-old alleges he was sexually assaulted by Carter as well.
