Brooke DinkelSALINA, KS – A judge sentenced 33-year-old Brooke Dinkel to 13 years in jail after the former middle school counselor was convicted of having sex with a 13-year-old student.

Dinkel was a school counselor at Smoky Valley Middle School Counselor where the victim, a relative of a close family friend, was a student. He was later hired to do some work inside her home and this is where the sexual encounters between the two occurred.

Police where tipped off to the relationship after Dinkel shard intimate details of her sexual encounters with colleagues and friends. She was arrested and face a slew of charges, including 8 other counts of rape and 10 counts of aggravated criminal sodomy.

During her trial in June, she told the court that the 13-year-old had raped her, but the sexual encounters continued because she said the boy was blackmailing her. As you can imagine, that defense didn’t go over to well with the jury.

They ended up finding her guilty of two counts of rape. Her sentencing was last Thursday where Dinkel’s defense attorney pleaded with Saline County District Judge Patrick Thompson not to drop the hammer on her client.

Roger Struble asked the judge not to impose the recommended sentence of life without the possibility of parole for 25 years. He said that Dinkel is not a sexual predator and suffers from significant psychological issues.

Prosecutor Christina Trochek countered that the maximum sentence should be imposed, stating Dinkel was in a position of trust. He argued that even though Dinkel was privy to the boy’s issues and home-life, she still initiated a sexual relationship with him.

Dinkel addressed the judge as well, saying she only wanted to help others, including the victim. “He raped me. I don’t know what happened after that. I cant explain my actions,” Dinkel told the judge. “I am not a sexual predator. I have a 4-year-old and a 6-year-old daughter that right now do not have a mother. I am begging you to let me return to my family. My little girls. To let them have their mother back.”

Judge Thompson told Dinkel to go fuck herself.

While he did not impose a sentence of life behind bars, he did sentence Dinkel to 165 months in prison, ordered her to be on lifetime supervision once released, and to pay just over $2,200 in restitution.

He told Dinkel that she was the one who damaged her own family, the victim, and the victim’s family. “You are not the victim here,” he concluded.
