ARLINGTON — A 16-year-old Arlington boy went to police in April, and reported years of sexual abuse by a neighbor.

Detectives believe they’ve identified at least two other victims, now 17 and 20.

The woman, 34, was arrested and booked into jail Aug. 6. She posted a $25,000 bond Tuesday evening. The Globe-Times generally does not identify suspects before they are charged in court.

The woman is being investigated for rape, child rape, molestation and indecent liberties, arrest reports say. She also is accused of possessing child pornography, communicating with a minor for immoral purposes and distributing narcotics to a minor.

The first boy said the relationship started with text messages and pictures that became increasingly explicit. He said they began having sexual contact when he was 14. The boy said that in recent months the woman had supplied him with alcohol, marijuana and prescription painkillers. At times, the woman would call him in sick to school so he could go to her house during the day, he said.

The two other young people lived in the same neighborhood. One used to babysit the woman’s children. She told police she was 16 when the woman tried to set her up with a man who was 34. She said the woman had kissed her and given her alcohol. She also said the woman took pictures of her partially clothed and sent those images to men.

The woman would watch the Disney Channel and say the boys on TV were “scrumptious,” the former babysitter said.

The other boy is 17 now. He said the woman at one point had gone into his bedroom and made advances, which he refused. He also said that when he was 14, the woman would take off her clothes around him during casual conversation. He received sexual texts and pictures from her around that time, he added.
