Woman, 38, arrested for having sex with a 16-year-old boy who was the son of her friend
Authorities in Louisiana have arrested a woman from Marrero accused of carrying on a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy for several weeks.
December Hebert, 38, was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna. Bond with her bail set at $5,000.
She is charged with carnal knowledge of a juvenile and indecent behavior of a juvenile.
Hebert apparently met the victim through acquaintances and allegedly persuaded the teen to participate in a sexual relationship for about three weeks in April 2015.
The sexual encounters took place at a home where she was living.
According to Nola.com, the boy told deputies he did not reveal the relationship to authorities because Hebert threatened him.
In the end, it was a friend of Hebert's who contacted the police in May of last year upon discovering the relationship.
It took detectives several months to investigate the case. When investigators obtained a warrant for Hebert's arrest in 2015, she was nowhere to be found.
The Sheriff's Office took her into custody on Wednesday from her home in Marrero.
The arrest wasn't planned. Deputies were at the property on an unrelated matter, but while cops were at the home they determined she had an outstanding warrant and arrested her.
