No charges in woman-teen case

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCALBRIEFING -

Pros­e­cu­tors have dropped charges against a 43-year-old Hous­ton mother ac­cused of fly­ing to Canada and lur­ing a 16-year-old boy away from home af­ter al­legedly hav­ing an on­line sex­ual re­la­tion­ship with him.

Donna Hawkins, a spokes­woman for the Har­ris County district at­tor­ney’s of­fice, said Fri­day that in­ves­ti­ga­tors de­ter­mined that they would not be able to prove Lauri Price knew the teen was a mi­nor.

The three charges Price faced — two counts of on­line so­lic­i­ta­tion of a mi­nor and one count of en­tic­ing a child with the in­tent to com­mit a felony — were dis­missed ear­lier this week.
