Connecticut Woman Accused of Sex with Boy, 10

(Meriden, Connecticut) A 25-year-old Willimantic woman, Marybeth Rataic, has been accused of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old boy.

Rataic faces counts of first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.
According to the arrest warrant, the mother of the child filed a report with city police on Aug. 25. The boy told his mother Rataic and he had sex on at least three occasions, the warrant says.

The boy’s mother was friends with Rataic, and Rataic would babysit her four children, the warrant said. The boy was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital, where a forensic interview was completed. The reported incidents happened between Aug. 19 and 23.

A Department of Children and Families investigator and a police detective went to Rataic’s home in September. When asked about the allegations, Rataic said the boy forced the sexual activity on her, the warrant said. Rataic said she didn’t tell anyone what happened because she was “embarrassed.”
Rataic is in custody with bond set at $150,000.
