Twenty-five-year-old Marissa Mowry is now in police custody after she reportedly raped an 11-year-old boy and gave birth to his child.
Mowry and the 11-year-old boy began a sexual relationship in early January 2014 and had the child later that year. The sexual relationship went on in secret until the boy turned 14—an anonymous tip of the illegal relationship was sent to the police in April.
Officers investigated and charged Mowry with sexual assault and battery of a well-under-age child. During the investigation, Mowry claimed the 11-year-old boy had raped her while she was “highly medicated” and recovering from a cold. But she eventually admitted it was a lie.
If Mowry is convicted for her crimes, she’s looking at a probable, mandatory, life sentence.
The now-three-years-old baby is being transferred to the care of a “responsible adult.”
