Denver mother, 33, is accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy and having two children with him
A mother of two has been arrested after being accused of sexually assaulting an underage boy and having two children with him.
Alicia Hernandez, 33, from Denver has been charged with sex assault on a child and sex assault after police received a report of an inappropriate relationship from Denver Department of Human Services.
According to court documents, the victim, who is now 18, began the relationship with Hernandez four years ago when he was just 14. Hernandez was 29 at the time, making her 15 years older than him.
According to NBC11, the victim told police he met the 33-year-old at Garfield Park in Denver, and told her he was 18.
After a year of dating, police believe the couple began to have sex, with Hernandez becoming pregnant and giving birth to their first child in June 2013.
Court records also show that Hernandez became pregnant again and their second child was born in January 2015.
Police say she admitted that she did meet the victim at the park and officers believe she conceived their first child in 2012.
The Denver District Attorney confirmed that Hernandez has been released from custody and is on a $50,000 bond.
She's scheduled to appear back in court on October 18. It is unknown who is currently caring for the two children, who are aged one and three.
