Police launched an investigation into 44-year-old Claudia Yaneth Lopez in August when the victim's mother discovered a suggestive text message Lopez allegedly sent the teen.

The woman immediately notified police, who took the boy to the Children's Advocacy Center for a forensic review.

During a September interview, the boy, who was younger than 17 at the time of the alleged incident, told police he had sex with Lopez. A month later, Lopez admitted to a tryst with the teen.

Lopez was arrested last Thursday and was released from jail the next day after posting her $10,000 bond. She faces one felony charge of sexual assault of a child.

While public records show Lopez has no prior criminal history, she still faces up to twenty years in prison if found guilty of the second-degree felony.
