A 29-year-old woman met a boy 15 years her junior at a Denver park and started a sexual relationship with him resulting in two children, prosecutors say. Authorities allege Alicia Hernandez, now 33, first met the boy in 2011 or 2012—when he was just 14, though he claims he told Hernandez he was 18, per KMGH. He told authorities the pair began having sex about a year later, per WXIA, though their relationship was only reported to police earlier this month. It isn’t clear when Hernandez learned the boy had lied about his age.
Hernandez—who gave birth in June 2013 and January 2015—is now charged with sexual assault on a child, a felony, and sexual assault with a 10-year age difference, a misdemeanor. She is out of jail on a $50,000 bond and is due back in court on Oct. 18. In a separate case out of Denver, authorities say Alexandra Kuisis, 41, is charged with sexual assault on a child after she befriended a family and assaulted their 8-year-old daughter, who recently spoke out, reports the Denver Post.
