A Texas woman has been arrested after she allegedly had sex with her teenage nephew “hundreds of times.”
According to Daily Mail, 43 year-old Peggy Phillips began the affair with the boy sometime between 2007 and 2009, when he was only 15 or 16 years-old. Court documents say Phillips first assaulted the boy when he was in the hospital in 2007.
Police have not released many details about the case, but the boy is set to have moved from South Carolina to live with his uncle, who Phillips was married to at the time, in 2008. The uncle told authorities he took the boy in because he was in “a bad situation in South Carolina,” but things quickly “went south” in Texas as well.
Phillips has been accused of having sex with the teenager “hundreds of times after that inside the house” as well as sending him inappropriate photos and text messages. She is no longer married to the uncle, and it’s unclear why charges have only been filed now, eight years later.
Phillips has been charged with sexual assault of a child and is currently being held on $30,000 bond. How do you think she should be punished? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
