An Erie woman has been convicted of raping an 11-year-old boy.

Twenty-eight-year-old Carrie Dana was convicted Monday of felony counts of rape, indecent assault of a child younger than age 13, and a misdemeanor count of corruption of minors. She was acquitted of two felony counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.

Dana's defense attorney had claimed that she didn't repeatedly rape the boy, but was instead a victim of his obsession with her. But prosecutors argued that Dana regularly had sex with the boy and stopped only when she thought others were becoming suspicious.

Because of his age, the boy couldn't legally consent to have sex.

Dana's sentencing was set for Aug. 20.
