Female Teacher’s Aide, 35, Accused Of Having Sex With Boy, 13

PALMDALE (CBS) — A campus sex scandal in Palmdale: a 35-year-old teacher’s aide is accused of having sex with a 13-year-old student in a classroom.

The incident allegedly happened during an after-school tutoring program and it all came to light after a relative of the boy got a look at this cell phone.

The suspect, Holly Polson, worked at Shadow Hills Middle School, and police said it was there that the woman had sex with the young boy inside a vacant classroom.

“Detectives interviewed her and during the course of that interview she confessed to several instances of having sexual intercourse with this 13-year-old victim,” said Sgt. Brian Hudson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Investigators told KCAL9 that relatives of the boy found suggestive text messages from Polson on his phone. When the boy was confronted, he admitted to what had happened.

Polson told investigators that she was falling in love.

“She professed to the detectives that she was developing feelings for him over a period of the month prior,” said Hudson.

No one answered at Polson’s home, but a woman that neighbor’s later identified as Polson’s mother told KCAL9 in tears that she had no comment when asked if she knew of Polson’s arrest.

Other neighbors who have children in Shadow Hills couldn’t believe the news.

“It’s kind of just crazy to live on this block, I don’t know, for something like that to happen, you never know what neighbors you have, what kind of neighbors,” said Eddie Carranza.

Polson is still in jail on $100,000 bail. She faces four felony counts of lewd acts with a child, and if found guilty, she must also register as a sex offender.

    So, did he rat her out before or after the text messages were found?

      Testosterome levels are extremely high for boys that age.

      • Realist58

        Seems like a lot of female nasty wh@r& has some pretty low moral levels too.

      • juan

        I think she should be acquitted.

      “but a woman that neighbor’s later identified”


      This is the second article I’ve read on this website and neither made it through a few paragraphs without a glaring grammatical error. You should assign these reporters to the Washington desk. There, they might shine.

      you should hire veterans instead of hiring people because they speak spanish

      • 82nd Airborne

        u should hire veterans that speak spanish…

  • puro pedo

    I’m outraged by this behavior!!!!! R there no morals??????

    • Saber 1

      I know, the kid should of kept his mouth shut. He is to blame as much as she is.

      • I love having sex with my teacher.

        It would been a dream come true for me..

      • nodoublestandards

        “the kid should have kept his mouth shut.”

        Sounds to me like you’re in favor of Pedophilia.

      • giigatee gigatee gig

        Look at her photo… He probably wanted to shake her loose! Ewwwww…

      • Sandy Shores

        This is a 13 year old kid, young enough to be her child. You can’t blame him. Saber, you are an idiot!

    • Dave Culver

      The question is my Latin friend…..Do you people have morals?

    • Dave Culver

      Do Latin people have any?

      • Latin Morals

        What a stupid coment from what I can see being an even stupider Culver City Maggot.

  • nodoublestandards

    Headline should read………


    Because “sex” implies that there was mutual consent.
    A 13 year old boy or girl CANNOT consent to sex, therefore call it what it is,

    • Hazmat77

      By itself, the word “Sex” does NOT imply mutual consent. There is no crime designated as “Sex”.

      • Get a clue

        There is when one of the participants is under age. That’s called statutory rape in which double standards was refering to. The use of the term “sex” implies consent or mitigates what was an actual rape. The term sex id not used generally when writing a story about rape.

    • Brian Andrews

      Ah, but if he kills somebody you want to treat him as an adult, right?

      You people are such idiots…like this is going to damage a 13 year old kid, or like he doesn’t know what he was agreeing to. Stop acting like sex is the friggan end of the world and maybe it won’t be.

      • L.arry B

        Thanks Brian, I could of not said it better and I am trying.

  • Lynwood Sibley

    my first time was with a marrieed woman and I was the instigator at 14
    I was horney and wow by law and moral judgements it was wrong
    but it was great at that time

    • Dave Culver

      You are one sick person…….you should be locked up!!!

      • Mel

        you must be one of those Geeks Dave

  • danny s

    no keep your kids away from people named ling long ting tong ching chong

  • alan hart

    Where was she when I was in middle school. We all know, it isn’t assault, it’s sex education!

  • Realist58


    Why is it when a female pedophile is caught it is high fives and all good bantor but when it is a 35 year old male teacher and a 13 year old girl you all sing a different tune?

    • Hazmat77

      Get REAL.

    • Dave Culver

      You know Realist58…..I’ve been looking at your comments…… I think that you are a pedophile…

  • Realist58


    Or will she get a commendation and probation just because she has a v@g!n@ ?

  • David Emerson Powell

    Equal Justice under law means that. If it was a male teacher they’d be hung out to dry and the same should happen here.

  • Tony The Tiger

    What a stupid broad.She could easily find a man to take care of her yet she chooses somebodys kid.You can’t blame the boy as nearly every young boy is gonna go for it at that age.The reason this stuff keeps hapening is they haven’t punished most women who do this.Make it an automatic 20 years and see how many do it.

      Oh my mercy! I’d like to give an “attaboy” to young Mr. Doe and offer my video services to the nasty teacher. :p

  • OC nieghbor

    when i was in school i would hear about sories like this but then again teachers werent as hot as they are now.. before we had fossils teachering now some teaches can be as young as 22 so with the age being fairly close these days and some kids dating older guys and girls im not so suprise anymore these stories are a regular occurence and for those that always think its racial thing you really need to open your eyes

  • Mother Nature

    It’s just sex.
    If you are old enough to father a child, you are old enough.

    • Hazmat77

      too many freakin prudes around; but you are so right…

  • Steve

    Man…sure is a lot of self-righteous judgement in this room. None uf us would be here is we didn’t have the occasional teenager in our family history who had sex, became a mother or father, married or not. News flash–kids are going to have sex. Period. Or in this case, sixth period ;)

  • John

    Dang! Why didn’t I have teachers like that when I was in high school!

  • name

    everyone in here is a dumbA$$ with little to no education. except me! pls disregard the comments on this page…false information

  • test


  • Alex G

    i dont condone any of this behavior, but its funny how when a man does it its molest, but when a female does it its having sex. i just think its funny.

  • alex alvarenga

    Nothing wirse then a COUGAR running loose around young men….

  • TekDoo

    Wow, why didnt I have teachers like that back in the day. Wow. Kid is a legend I bet amongst his friends.


  • I'm Lovin" It

    She admitted to having sex with ‘the victim’ several times. Let’s see photos of the bruises he gave her trying to fight her off….yeah right.

    If they did it in a McDonald’s bathroom, he’d be singin’ “I’m Lovin’ IT!!!!”

  • Steve Kellmeyer

    This wouldn’t happen if teachers were allowed to marry.
    This wouldn’t happen if they allowed female teachers.
    This wouldn’t happen if teachers didn’t have to be celibate.

    Oh, wait… you’re only allowed to use those arguments against priests.
    I keep forgetting… When men have sex with teens, it’s creepy.
    When women have sex with teens, it’s WONDERFUL.

  • The Big Logic

    That happens mostly in their homeland of Africa where they can get away with it. In this country, the fear of getting caught usually puts a cap on their inherent savagery in this area of aberrant behaviour.

  • .Reginald

    One can call it whatever one wants. Molestation, Pedophiia, consentual sex or whatever. What’s the problem? Was the boy raped or was it consentual? A 13 year old has the ability to consent or not. I’m speaking from experience. I had consentual sex with one of my freshman teachers. It was and still is one of the most satisfying experiences of my life. Yes, I was in love with her, and I still am. Yes, she was in love with me and I hope she still is. She was young beautiful, and married, but we had sense enough to be discreet. Our relationship lasted for almost two years. She was 25 and I was 14. Stuff happens in all aspects of life, and I’m so happy that I had the opportunity to be a part of this beautiful womans life. By the way, I’m now 74 years young.

    • Cougar I am, Not! I never hunt

      Most males 14 years of age most definitely are capable of giving consent to sexual acts but not necessarily capable of making sound decisions. Most of the time it is confused feelings with both parties.

      I will be 42 in October, people have been telling me for the last 8 years I look like I could be no older than 25. My husband turned 26 this last March. We have been together for the last 5 years and headed into our 6th year of eternal bliss. Besides the fact that I am an attractive female, most people think I am in my mid 20’s even before I met my husband shortly after he turned 21.

      Besides the fact that I am an attractive female, I also have a very caring and nurturing personality which was something my husband was needing at the time. We never argue and I feel like I am 16 again.

      I was not looking for a relationship, my husband just crossed my path and I ended up helping with some issues in his life and next thing you know we were in love. At first it was awkward for me because I would never think about dating someone 15 1/2 yrs younger than me. The most I ever would have considered dating was someone 5-7 years difference age, depending on my current age of course. I really had never heard much about the term “cougar” before my husband told me about it. My family and my husband had a lot of fun with the “boy toy” term and my husband loves teasing me about being old and decaying before he ever will.

      FYI: We are both big into natural options for maintaining our bodies as well as internal organs and functions. Pharmaceutical products are toxic too your body, just look at all the side effects with pharmaceutical remedies versus natural. Pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to heal yourself because then there would be less people depending on them to see them for their ailments.

      Other than when I went of a 15 foot cliff with an ATV and had to have treatment I have not been to a physician in over 15 years and maybe lose one day of work due too weather changes or upon my husband demanding I stay home for once rather than keep my perfect attendance record. My employer offers medical insurance that I can pay for but why should I pay for something I am capable of paying for when the time arises. When I went over the top of a sand dune with a 15 foot drop, where upon impact at the bottom the ATV flipped over and onto me. I had too go to the Emergency room in a state I was not familiar with, they could not really assist me since I was leaving the next day back to my home state. I paid for all my medical bills including having my wrist re-broke by an orthopedic surgeon who said surgery was the only way to correct the wrist since it was so out of alignment.

      Sorry for the rant, bottom line is that in this situation this teacher in a position of trust and knowing right from wrong took advantage of this young man’s mind and manipulated it too fit her needs. 22 years difference. She is old enough to be his mother and should be treated in the same manner a man would be treated if he committed sexual acts with a minor.

        ‘We never argue’

        Then you must be lying. If you’ve been married 6 years and never had an argument, then you aren’t married. There is no way you haven’t had a SINGLE argument in 6 years. Get real.

    • Rod Anders

      Same here. I’m 70. Such prudes and prudish laws today. Ridiculous.
