Deputies: Woman gives birth to child fathered by 11-year-old

A Port Richey woman was arrested Tuesday, almost three years after deputies say she gave birth to a child fathered by an 11-year-old boy.

Authorities said she continued to have sexual relations with the victim "multiple times" over the following three years.

A Florida woman has been charged with sexual battery for allegedly having sex with an 11-year-old boy, an encounter that resulted in her getting pregnant, authorities said. The ABC Action News report states that Mowry had a baby in October 2014, making the child now almost three years of age.

WFTS reports Mowry was arrested following the completion of an investigation.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says in January 2014, Marissa A. Mowry, 22-years-old at the time, had sex with an 11-year-old boy. The arrest took place outside Busch Gardens theme park, where Mowry works as a food attendant, according to jail records.

Her three-year-old child, born in October 2014, has been put "in the care of a responsible adult".

The 25-year-old, of Port Richey, is being held at Hillsborough County Jail.
