Mistie Atkinson, 32, had sex with her estranged teenage son, police say
(CBS) A 32-year-old California woman is facing an incest charge among other allegations after allegedly having sex with her estranged teenage son.
A law enforcement source told the New York Daily News that Mistie Atkinson had not had contact with her now 16-year-old son for 15 years, but contacted him last year through Facebook.
Authorities say police in Napa were serving a search warrant in March. That is when they found Atkinson and the 16-year-old in a hotel room, reports the Daily News.
According to the Napa Valley Register, she was reportedly arrested and charged with incest, oral copulation with a minor, contact with a minor for a sexual offense, and "sending harmful matter" to the teen.
The Register reports Atkinson pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Napa police, in a court filing, say videos from the boy's phone, dated Feb. 3 and Feb. 4, show Atkins allegedly performing oral sex and engaging in sexual intercourse with the boy, the Register reports. Authorities say Atkinson also may have sent explicit images of herself to the boy electronically.
Atkinson is now being held on $200,000 bail, the Register reports. She is scheduled for a hearing May 10.
According to the Register, court records reveal that the boy's father, who has full custody, has obtained a restraining order against Atkinson.
