An Oregon woman has been charged with multiple sex crimes for allegedly luring a 14-year-old boy, who goes to school with her daughter, through Snapchat and having sex with him, police said.
Rheta Melvin, 36, was arrested after police opened an investigation into the mother “after learning that Melvin had sexual contact with a teenage male.”
Melvin allegedly messaged the 14-year-old through Snapchat and traded sexual images with him. Melvin allegedly picked him up in her car where the two had sex in her back seat.
Melvin admitted to “sexting” a boy, whom she said she thought was “either 17 or 18,” and confessed to sharing explicit photos with him.
She was booked at the Douglas County Jail and charged with third-degree sodomy, third-degree rape, contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor and first-degree online sexual corruption of a child.
