    Bubba Frank and Linda Lusk have conflicting accounts of what happened when the high school football player visited the Lusk home. Bubba's mother Heidi Frank, pictured above in a 2012 interview with ABC News' "20/20," believes her son was the victim of an inappropriate relationship with a middle-aged woman who should have known better.

Under a work release program, she spent her nights in prison and her days working at her store for some three months.
