Woman Posing as Boy Accused of Tricking Girl into Having Sex
A woman from Massachusetts, who is being accused of dressing and posing as a boy, may be charged for having in inappropriate sexual conduct with a 15-year-old girl, the Smoking Gun reported.
An affidavit sworn by an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force investigator said that Carissa Hads, 24, posed as a 17-year-old boy named "James Puryear Wilson" and met the teenager, who is from West Virginia, on a social networking website in late 2010.
The 24-year-old was arrested two weeks ago and is being accused of coercing or enticing a minor. She faces up to 30 years in prison and a judge declared her a flight risk and a danger to the community.
Hads created Facebook and MySpace profiles under the alias and described "Wilson" as a youth pastor who lived in Quincy, Mass. -- where Hads lives. The Facebook page said that "Wilson" was the father of twins and was "looking for some people to talk to. No fake pages or pervs."
The teen, who is in the affidavit under the name "A.L.," became "involved in an Internet romance" with Hads under her "Wilson" identity. Hads sent "A.L." two cell phones so she could contact "Wilson," paid for her phone bills and gave her a Kindle Fire tablet.
