Annette Martinez - New Mexico Woman Allegedly Admits To Sexually Assaulting 14 Year Old Up To 40 Times
Las Cruces, New Mexico (The Weekly Vice) -- Annette Martinez, a 25 year old Las Cruces, New Mexico babysitter has been arrested after allegedly admitting that she sexually assaulted a 14 year old boy repeatedly. Told police she's in love with him.
Las Cruces authorities say Martinez was arrested on Tuesday and charged with one felony count of sexual penetration of a minor after she allegedly admitted to police she had sex with the 14-year-old about 40 times. The victim stated the number incidents was about 10 times.
According to the arrest affidavit, Martinez admitted to starting a relationship with the teen on July 8th after babysitting the boy and his two siblings for over a month. She also allegedly told police that she was in love with the boy and wanted to have his child. She also believed that the teen felt the same way about her.
Police first became aware of Martinez behavior when the teen got into an argument with his mother and left his home for Martinez' home. Afterwards during a conversation with the boy's mother, Martinez allegedly broke down crying, admitting to her that she had been having a relationship with the woman's son.
In a twist to the case, Martinez now claims that she may be pregnant as a result of the multiple sexual encounters she's had with the teen.
Martinez was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center on a $5,000 bond.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
It never ceases to amaze me how many times we find these seemingly normal, fairly attractive women who probably ignore the attention of regular guys, but then trip all over themselves over a little kid. In a lot of these cases, we aren't referring to just a sexual encounter. It's this weird kind of giddy love thing that just defies all logic.
Would some female please explain what on earth could possibly be attractive about a 14 year old kid that would turn a grown woman into a lovesick hound dog who makes a complete fool of herself? The rest of us would really like to know.
