(LaFayette, Georgia) A 20-year-old local woman, Crystal Leeanne Cothern, has been accused of engaging in sex with a 15-year-old boy.

The minor stayed with Cothern for a few days, telling his mother that he was staying over with a friend, according to captain Stacey Meeks of the LaFayette Police Department.Cothern has been arrested. Details on booking are unavailable.
“It was consensual, but due to his age it’s statutory rape since he can’t consent,” Meeks said.
The boy eventually told his mother the truth and that he had a relationship with the woman and it had been sexual.
