HOLLY HILL, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — A Florida woman who was previously charged with bestiality three years ago has now been accused of having sex with a minor.
Officials say 23-year-old Brittany Sonnier is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old and offering him marijuana, as reported by KNXV.
Court documents say Sonnier was caught when the mother of the boy saw Facebook messages suggesting an inappropriate relationship between the two.
While investigating, police discovered that Sonnier had been arrested in Arizona for a 2012 felony bestiality charge.
The boy initially denied having sex with Sonnier but eventually told Florida police investigators that they had sex several times. The boy was reportedly alarmed after finding out about Sonnier’s past and was taken to a physician to check for venereal diseases.
Sonnier also initially denied having sexual relations with the teen but later admitting to giving the 15-year-old marijuana and having sex while intoxicated.
The suspect told investigators she moved away from Arizona and changed her name following the bestiality charges. She now faces charges of lewd lascivious battery by engaging in sex with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
For the curious readers, here’s a report about her “previous charges”.
