A former Friona, Texas police officer has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison after she admitted to sexually assaulting two teenage boys.

Thirty-one-year-old Delia Ruiz admitted that she began having sex with a 16 year old in the fall of 2020. This would continue until spring 2021. KAMC News reports that she also began having sex with a 15 year old that she met at the first victim's house. This was in spring 2021.

On three different occasions, Ruiz had met up with one of the teens and had sex with him in her car in a church parking lot. She also had sent sexually explicit photos and videos of herself to the teen, but told him not to tell anyone about them so she wouldn't get in trouble.

Ruiz was arrested in October 2021 and pleaded guilty to enticement of a minor in January 2022. She was fired from the Friona Police Department soon after her arrest. It wasn't until Wednesday, June 1st, 2022 that she was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.
