Mum, 29, faces prison for baby with school­boy

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A WO­MAN age 29 is fac­ing more than 15 years in jail af­ter hav­ing sex with a 14-year-old boy and get­ting preg­nant.

Tra­cie Casler met the boy at a Hal­loween party in 2016 and the pair went back to her house.

There Casler took him to her bed­room where she per­formed a sex act on him.

They then had full sex in her bed and he did not wear a con­dom.

It was the only time the pair had sex but Casler fell preg­nant and nine months later gave birth to a boy.

Af­ter the child was born, Casler told friends and fam­ily what had hap­pened and one of them tipped off the po­lice.

Casler, of Santa Rosa, was charged with one count of lewd and las­civ­i­ous bat­tery with a vic­tim aged 12 to 16.

It is a strict li­a­bil­ity crime, which means that con­sent or not know­ing the boy was un­der age can­not be of­fered as a de­fence.

DNA tests have been taken and although the re­sults have not been pub­licly re­leased it is un­der­stood they con­firm that the vic­tim is the fa­ther.
