Mother charged with sex crimes involving minor in Pennsylvania

While sexuality may be a part of human nature, there are laws that regulate sexual behavior, especially when it comes to minor children. Violating these laws can result in serious legal consequences. One woman is now finding this out in a recent incident that now has her facing accusations of sex crimes in Pennsylvania.

The mother had been a volunteer for her daughter's cheerleader squad at a local high school. The mother began an illicit relationship with a 17-year-old boy who was also a student at the local high school where her daughter attended. The mother was arrested after a police officer caught her and the victim in a sexual act.

The two admitted to being engaged in sexual activity after a police officer spotted them at approximately 8:30 p.m. one evening in mid-November. They had been in a vehicle that was parked illegally at the time of the incident. The mother, who is employed at Victoria's Secret, expressed her remorse for the situation. The suspect posted $50,000 bail and was scheduled to appear in court shortly afterward.

Although the alleged crime may be shocking to many, the suspect has the right to defend herself against the sex crimes charges in a court of law in Pennsylvania. It is important for the defendant to come up with a strong legal defense strategy since there is so much at stake. Failure to do so could result in significant time behind bars. Therefore, knowledge of rules of evidence as well as relevant statutes and case law will be essential.
