37-year-old woman charged with sexual assault of a minor
A 37-year-old woman is accused of sexually assaulting a teenager in a group home in York and ending up pregnant.
The 15-year-old told investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol that he was living at the Epworth Village group home in York when he and Jamie Bishop began having sex two to three times a week from January 2015 to July 2015, according to an affidavit for her arrest.
Bishop was a staff member of Epworth Village at the time of the alleged assaults and was suspended last summer and then terminated, officials at the group home said.
All sexual relations allegedly took place in the victim's room at Epworth Village, or outside on the facilities grounds.
Bishop and the boy were seen together several times on surveillance video and her Internet history showed she searched for the definition of degrees of sexual assault in Nebraska, consequences of lying to police and the age of consent in Nebraska, documents say.
DNA test results returned March 9 show the teenager fathered Bishop’s now 5-month-old son, documents say.
In Nebraska, children younger than 16 cannot legally consent to sex.
Bishop was arrested March 15 and charged with first-degree sexual assault of a minor Wednesday. York County Judge Linda Senff set her bail at $75,000.
