(Fruitland, Idaho) A 35-year-old local mom, Sheryl Nawahine, has been indicted by a Payette County grand jury on three counts of sexual battery of a minor between the ages of 16 and 17.
The Payette County Sheriff's Office says Nawahine turned herself in Saturday morning, but bonded out of jail not long after.The relationship was discovered by the 16-year-old boy's football coach who saw a picture of Nawahine exposed from the waist up on the boy's cell phone. The coach alerted the authorities.
The charges include sexually explicit conduct and showing a sexually explicit video and/or photograph to a minor.
The sexually explicit conduct charge stems from a long record of more than 900 text messages between Nawahine and a minor -- many of them explicit in nature.

This is interesting. Check out some of the text messages (among the 900 plus) sent between Nawahine and the boy. Obviously, there was something serious going on.
