Taxas . A South Texas woman was arrested last week after police say she sexually assaulted her daughter’s teenage boyfriend.
Claudia Yaneth Lopez, 44, of Pharr, a suburb of McAllen, faces a charge of sexual assault of a child. She was arrested Thursday and released from the Hidalgo County jail a day later after posting $10,000 bond.
Police started investigating in August after a woman found an explicit text message on her juvenile son’s phone, KGBT-TV reports.
The boy, who was dating Lopez’s daughter, told authorities he had sex with Lopez. Records indicate that he is younger than 17 but don’t disclose his exact age. Lopez later admitted to police that she had intercourse with the teen, court documents show.
Public records don’t show any previous criminal history for Lopez, who faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of the second-degree felony.
