SEATTLE (AP) — A 27-year-old woman was charged with a felony for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old boy in exchange for an Apple iPod.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that Marie Bracy met with the boy after he responded to a prostitution advertisement she posted on the website Backpage.com.
King County prosecutors say Bracy initially asked for $160 but agreed to take the iPod because the boy didn’t have any money. The boy’s parents contacted the sheriff’s office after the learned their son had hired a prostitute.
Bracy has been charged with communication with a minor for immoral purposes. She likely faces one to three months in jail if convicted. She has not been jailed.
