An 18-year-old woman has been arrested on Sept. 16 in Kentucky after allegedly sexually abusing and having intercourse with a 12-year-old boy multiple times in what authorities are considering as a sex crime below the age of consent of the participant.

Morgan Roberts has been charged with sodomy, rape, and sexual abuse after engaging in sexual intercourse with a 12-year-old victim at least three times, according to Law&Order.

“I took your V card and you liked it,” the suspect taunted in a text that was discovered by the boy’s mother, who was looking through her son’s phone.

“The first took place at [the boy’s] residence in Ludlow,” the court document said. “[The boy] states Roberts touched his penis with her hands, performed oral sex on him, and had intercourse with him. The second encounter took place at Roberts’ residence in Bromley.”

Roberts met the boy with his group of similarly-aged friends who was also pals with the suspect, though it is not known how the group befriended Roberts originally. Two other minors reportedly knew about the situation, and all three were asked by Roberts to call her “mom,” Local 12 reported.

“We take sex crimes very seriously, especially those against children,” Rob Sanders, prosecutor of the case, said. “The fact that this defendant is female makes the case somewhat unusual, but no less serious.”

Regarding the case, Sanders said that they found it “a little bizarre” that Roberts would associate herself so clearly with hanging out with minors and children.

“She was associating with, befriending children that were significantly younger than she is, that was far below the age of consent in Kentucky, and that’s how we believe she came into contact with the victim in this case,” Sanders said.

The police do not believe that there are other victims, despite the group of friends that she seems to hang out with. Roberts has been released on a $10,000 bond.

The age of consent in Kentucky is 16, according to Suhre & Associates, a law firm.
