Atkinson was arrested on a warrant in March in Mendocino County where she was found in a Ukiah room with her biological son, court documents show.
The father of the boy said in court filings that Atkinson and his son, now 17, began communicating with each other on Facebook and with the telephone starting last September, according to the restraining order the man filed in County Superior Court in November.
Atkinson, the man said in the court document, “had been talking to him in manner that no mother should talk to their son.”
“She started to have a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship with him, not a mother-and-son relationship. It got to a point where their conversation began talking about harming me and killing off her boyfriend she was (now) living with. She was sending him pictures of her body and basically seducing him. The relationship needs to stop and we told both of them but they continue to get in contact with each other. It’s unhealthy and they need to stay apart,” the man said.
