Glendale, AZ (The Weekly Vice) - Anna Areola-Hernandez, a 23-year-old Arizona woman, has been jailed after she allegedly gave a 13-year-old boy a sexually transmitted disease while posing as a 15-year-old girl.
According to police, an investigation was launched in February after the mother of a 13-year-old boy reported that her son had been having a sexual relationship with Areola-Hernandez and that she "gave him a sexually transmitted disease" during the course of the relationship.
Investigators first set up a conference call between the boy's mother and Areola-Hernandez to see what the suspect would admit to. During the call, Areola-Hernandez allegedly told the mother that she was pregnant with the victim's baby.
During a police interview, Areola-Hernandez initially denied having sex with the boy, but later admitted to having the sexual relationship with him. She explained that she met the boy at a local mall before contacting him on Facebook. She also told investigators that she posed as a 15-year-old girl because she preferred younger boys rather than men her own age.
Further investigation revealed that Areola-Hernandez uses multiple profiles and chat programs where she regularly poses as a 15-year-old girl using the screen names "Tiny Hernandez" or Ana Hernandez."
Areola-Hernandez was booked into jail and charged with sexual conduct with a minor, child molestation, unlawful age misrepresentation, and an adult posing as a minor for a sexual conduct.
Areola-Hernandez currently remains held without bond because prosecutors say she has few family ties in Arizona and has made arrangements to travel to Mexico where her mother resides.
