A 25-year-old woman, Marissa Mowry, has been arrested and charged by Florida police with sexual battery after giving birth to an 11-year-old’s baby.
Mowry had sex with the 11-year-old in 2014, when she was 22 years old. She gave birth to the baby 9 months later.
Mowry continued her sexual relationship with the boy until he was 14 years old.
The Daily Mail reports:
Marissa Mowry and the boy are reported to have had sex in Hillsborough County, Florida, in January 2014.
Mowry, of Port Richey, was 22-years-old at the time while the victim was 11. She gave birth to the child in October that year.
She continued to have a sexual relationship with the victim until he was 14-years-old, ABC quoted officials as saying.
Detectives managed to secure an arrest warrant after completing their investigation into their ‘relationship’.
Mowry was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with sexual battery and transported to the Hillsborough County Jail.
Her three-year-old child is being placed with a responsible adult as the investigation continues.
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Child Protective Division is assisting in the investigation.
Stories of sexual abuse have been on the rise for the last several years. Many states have been working to update their child safety laws to help prosecute women that are using positions of power to abuse children.
