HICKORY, N.C. -- A court convicted a Catawba County woman Wednesday for sex crimes against a minor.

Darlene Fenners Melton, 56, was found guilty of indecent liberties with a child. She was sentenced to no less than three years and no more than ten years, in addition to 36 months of probation. Melton was also ordered to register as a sex offender.

The District Attorney’s Office says the crime occurred in August 1987 in Hickory with a boy under age 16. Melton was an employee of Hickory City Schools at the time. The victim was a student.

The victim reported the crimes this year.
