OGDEN -- A 22-year-old Roy woman has been charged with three counts of second-degree felony sexual abuse of a child.
The charge involves illicit sexual conduct short of intercourse with a male under the age of 14, according to charging documents.
Arraigned this week in 2nd District Court, Chelice Rodriguez was scheduled for a status conference May 16 before 2nd District Judge Michael DiReda. She was appointed a public defender.
Rodriguez was served a summons instead of having an officer take her into custody and book her into jail, which precludes the need for filing of a probable cause affidavit describing events. Roy Sgt. Danny Hammon, supervisor over the detective division, said such procedures are followed to protect the identity of the victim.
The illicit sexual contact occurred on at least three occasions over a two-month period from December to January, charging documents show.
The underage victim himself contacted police, Hammon said.
Officials declined to release any further detail, saying identifying locations or how Rodriguez came in contact with the alleged victim would only serve to identify him.
They did say, however, Rodriguez is not a schoolteacher and the case was not among a recent seeming surge of prosecutions of educators for underage sexual involvement with students in Weber and Davis counties.
