PHOENIX (AP) -- A Fountain Hills woman who pleaded no contest to sexual abuse and aggravated assault has been sentenced to a decade of supervised probation.
 
Maricopa County prosecutors say 26-year-old Frances Julia Hunnicutt was sentenced Tuesday.
 
She has already spent more than 150 days in custody.
 
Hunnicutt was indicted by a grand jury in April 2013.
 
The panel concluded she had knowingly engaged in sexual contact with a female victim twice in November 2012 and physically injured the same woman.
 
Hunnicutt's doctor says she has been living in a psychiatric treatment facility in Mesa for the past two years and continues to undergo therapy.
