Texas Woman Accused of Sex Assault of 15-Year-old, May Be Pregnant
A 21-year-old woman in East Texas has been arrested for sexual assault of a child, and may be carrying his baby. Sadly, the story only gets weirder.
KWTX is reporting that Grace Madison Perryman of Huntington was arrested earlier this month after authorities were told that she was sexually involved with a 15-year-old boy. Perryman is being held in the Angelina County Jail with a $100,000 bond.
Victim's Relationship with Grace Madison Perryman
According to the arrest affidavit, the victim admitted to his mother that he had sex several times with Perryman, and was worried that the 21-year-old might be pregnant with his child. The mother then reached out to police.
The affidavit stated that the relationship began when Perryman was 16 and the victim was 11. Perryman was living with the victim and his family, but at some point moved out of state. Last year, Perryman returned to Lufkin, staying at the victim’s house. They resumed their relationship, becoming sexually involved. The victim’s parents both knew that Perryman and their son had been having a sexual relationship.
What's the Age of Consent in Texas?
The age of consent is the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to agree to sexual activity. In Texas, the age of consent is 17 years. Texas has an age of consent because minors are not considered mature enough to understand intimate relationships, or the consequences that can result from them.
According to criminaldefenselawyer.com, penalties for sexual assault of a minor can include from two to twenty years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
