PHOENIX – A Phoenix woman was sentenced to seven years in prison for making sexual advances toward a teenage boy while playing online video games last year, authorities said Wednesday.

In May, Lisa Corn pleaded guilty to attempted sexual exploitation of a minor and aggravated luring of a minor, according to an email from the Superior Court of Arizona.

Corn was 33 when she was indicted by a grand jury on 24 counts in May 2018.

Investigators said she first contacted the 14-year-old victim on headsets while playing online Xbox video games.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Cybercrimes Unit launched an investigation after the boy’s father said Corn sent his son pornographic pictures of herself and messages of a sexual nature.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office offered the following suggestions to parents for online gaming safety:

• Set up privacy settings to control who can contact their child.

• Play online games with their kids to understand how they work.

• Know your child’s passwords and regularly check the history of each gaming device.

• Beware of chat rooms, which can have private, unrestricted sections.
