Crystal Walden's MySpace Profile
Greenland, New Hampshire (The Weekly Vice) -- Crystal Walden, a 34-year-old Texas woman was arrested Saturday night after she allegedly brought her 10-year-old son to a truck stop and then had sex with a random trucker as the boy watched.
According to Greenland police, Walden's 10-year-old son was found wandering in the cold without a coat or shoes near a Greenland truck stop. When authorities asked the boy where his parent's were, he told them "She's in a truck having sex with the driver."
The boy told officers that his mother brought him to the truck stop after having an argument with his grandmother. She then allegedly knocked on the first truck she saw and offered to have sex with the driver in exchange for a ride to Texas. The man reportedly agreed, and the two engaged in sex as the boy watched from the top bunk of the truck's cab.
At some point the boy left the truck cab and fled into the TA, where he encountered police officers. The boy then led officers back to the truck, where they found his mother "visibly intoxicated" with her pants "turned inside out", according the the arrest affidavit.
Walden was arrested on charges of two misdemeanor counts of child endangerment. One count for dragging the boy out into the could without proper clothing and another count for exposing him to the sex act she engaged in with the driver.
Greenland police say they plan to charge Walden with another charge of "interference of custody" since Walden's mother currently has legal custody of the boy.
In court, Walden told the judge that she had just moved to Portsmouth from Texas to get away from the abuse of her husband. She blamed alcohol as the reason for her irrational decision and promised to never take another drink again.
Walden is being held in lieu of a $2500 cash bail. She is due to appear back in court on Feb 11.
