Woman Accused of Sex Crime with Teen Boy in Port St Lucie
A 38-year-old woman accused of several sex acts with a teen boy was arrested recently on five felony charges.
The Port St. Lucie woman was arrested on five counts of sexual activity with a minor, according to court and arrest records.The alleged victim was 15 at the time, a Port St. Lucie police spokesman said.
During an investigation by police, the woman allegedly told investigators she knew the teen’s age since fall 2016 and reported performing sex acts on him “multiple times in 2016 and 2017,” records state.
She apparently told police she had sex with him “about 3 or 4 times.”
The woman is also accused of paying the teen for sex, but denied those allegations. She apparently gave the teen her debit card and gave him her car keys.
This woman is facing very serious charges. The state of Florida views sex crimes as heinous acts, and you can be certain that prosecutors will try to achieve the maximum penalties allotted under the law for these crimes.
If you are accused of a felony sex crime, make no mistake, you need legal help right away. Do not try and talk your way out of these charges because there is nothing you can say that will help you, regardless of what police may tell you. In fact, by speaking to police without an attorney present, you could actually further incriminate yourself. Police can translate your words to mean something else entirely. Your attorney can make sure that this does not happen and that your rights are protected.
Even if the accusation against you are 100 percent false or made up, you still have to protect yourself. Police tend to side with the alleged victims in these cases, even if there is no evidence to back up their statements.
