    A Massachusetts woman accused of raping two teenage boys on separate occasions was sentenced to four years in prison on Monday.

    Heather Salines, 40, of Saugus, pleaded guilty to raping her daughter's then 15-year-old boyfriend and his twin brother when he was 14.

    The married mother of two admitted to the charges in a plea deal, just as her trial was about to begin.

    "My client is happy to have put this matter behind her, she is exceptionally sorry for the pain that she caused everybody, especially her whole family," said Salines' defense attorney William Korman.

    Prosecutors had alleged that Salines acted like a mother to the two boys, after their own mother had passed away.

    They said the sexual abuse started after she picked the twins and her daughter up from school one day in February 2014.

    "When he went to go to the bathroom he was approached by the defendant, ultimately she kissed him and then they were in her bedroom," said Assistant District Attorney Kate MacDougall.

    MacDougall said Salines was caught after she and one of the boys took pictures together in a Danvers hotel room and he shared some of those nude photos with classmates at Saugus Middle School.

    "Ultimately those photographs were seen by people at the middle school," said MacDougall. "The defendant was interviewed by the Danvers police and she admitted all of the conduct."

    In a statement read by the prosecutor in court Monday, one of the victims said the abuse made him contemplate suicide.

    Salines will serve her four year sentence at MCI-Cedar Junction.

    She will then serve three years probation and will have to register as a sex offender.
