Woman To Face Statutory Rape Charges For Sex With 16-year-old

KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) -- A 31-year-old woman is scheduled to appear in court to face 13 counts of aggravated statutory rape for having sex with a 16-year-old boy.

Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal says Robyn J. Casey admitted to having sex with the boy -- who was a family acquaintance -- at least seven times in October and November.

Casey has also been charged with five counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Investigators said Casey gave tobacco products to the teenager.

She is being held in the Washington County Detention Center under a $655,000 bond. She was scheduled to appear Wednesday in Johnson City Sessions Court.
