SANTA ANA (CBS) — A Santa Ana mother accused of having a baby with a tenth grader made her first court appearance Monday, but did not enter a plea.
Mayra Gonzalez is accused of having sex with a 16-year-old boy six times last year.
She gave birth to a baby boy in March and says the teen is the father.
During the investigation, Santa Ana police say the 32-year-old admitted that she is in love with the boy, who is now 17.
The boy’s mother discovered the alleged relationship after neighbors told her about Gonzalez showing up at her apartment while she was away.
The District Attorney alleges activity between the pair lasted from July of 2007 until this past Christmas Eve.
Gonzalez, who is a mother of four, is expected to be arraigned at a later date.
If convicted, she faces up to eight years in state prison.
