RICHMOND, Ind. – An eastern Indiana woman faces a felony charge alleging that she repeatedly had sex with a 15-year-old boy who eventually impregnated her.
Twenty-three-year-old Jessica M. Thompson of Richmond appeared Friday in Wayne County Circuit Court for an initial hearing on one count of sexual misconduct with a minor. She remained jailed Saturday on a $10,000 cash bond.
The Palladium-Item reports court documents allege Thompson began chatting with the boy on MySpace when she was 22. Both Thompson and the teen told police the juvenile told Thompson during initial chats that he was 18.
Thompson told police she later discovered the boy was 15, but they continued having sex until she became pregnant.
Police said DNA testing determined the now 16-year-old boy is the father of Thompson's child.
