CA. Woman Seduces 13-Year-Old over Xbox Live, Gets Caught

January 10, 2011 -

Orange County. California sheriffs say that a 36-year-old-woman pretending to be a 23-year-old woman, seduced a 13-year old boy over Xbox Live. The woman subsequently took a trip from California to Maryland, where police allege that she had sex with the teenager. The online relationship began on Xbox Live in September and quickly escalated over the Thanksgiving holiday. The woman apparently met the boy in Maryland and had sex with him while his parents were sleeping.

The boy's parents became suspicious after finding romantic text messages on his phone. The woman also allegedly sent the boy x-rated pictures and movies of herself online.

The woman, Rachel Ann Hicks, is held without bail on charges of rape and child molestation. Hicks may face additional charges related to another young man she had inappropriate contact with, though police did not disclose details on that case. Hicks, the mother of three children, resides in Lake Forest.

Sheriffs enlisted the aid of "federal authorities" in finding Hicks’s real identity; she used a "fake name and age" on Xbox Live.

One point I feel is very important to note here is that this woman very likely has serious mental disorders. Jail time may not be appropriate or necessary in this case.

I dont see anything wrong. If a 13 yr old can be charged as an adult for a crime, why is he a child when it comes to sex?

"When a 13 yr old commits murder they are an adult, when a 16 yr old has sex, they are a child"

Public justice optimizes for the most blood.....

To play Devil's Advocate, that's actually a fair and legitimate thought process I never considered. Hell, I'll take it one step further: practioners of Judiasm believe a person is an adult at the age of 13 and is accountable for their own decisions at that point.

I guess every aspect of society has their different viewpoints.

 ewww ugly.

Re: CA. Woman Seduces 13-Year-Old over Xbox Live, Gets ...

13 is on the fence 10 is unquestionable. Tho I suppose at the end of the day sideing with jailing them is the best path to take.

 

Note to all my fellow pedos, all your loli/shota is baned, get over it :P

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

You know if it was a boy around 17 years old...sure why not. Don't like it, but they are old enough to start making their own decisions.

However 13 is way too young. That is pretty sick.

 Isn't a 23 year old still too old to be seducing a 13 year old?  

Also, she looks like Wednesday Addams all grown up.

Re: CA. Woman Seduces 13-Year-Old over Xbox Live, Gets ...

Eh, it is about what I remember seeing in middleschool and high school, so while it is a bit of a gap, it is not unusual and would not raise alarm bells with peers.

Re: CA. Woman Seduces 13-Year-Old over Xbox Live, Gets ...

The sad fact is that this is actually true, but I used to see it in reverse where teen girls would love try to go out with older guys, college guys being the general preference. Amongst peers, this was seen as general practice - though amongst adults, obviously the thought process is not the same.

I know in theory we are supposed to be going 'oh no! destroying of innocence!'.. but in practice I have never seen people regret these relationships later (at least no more then any other type) and the people in them seem pretty content with the setup.  The only people I see complaining are people not involved or grumbling that 'all the good girls are being taken by older guys!'.

Re: CA. Woman Seduces 13-Year-Old over Xbox Live, Gets ...

That's pretty much the status quo.

Mattsworknameargue that it's wrong, but then please admit it's wrong on ALL Fronts07/29/2015 - 2:06am
MattsworknameTechnoGeek: It's actually NOT, but it is a method used all across the specturm. See Rush limbaugh, MSNBC, Shawn hannity, etc etc, how many compagns have been brought up to try and shut them down by going after there advertisers. It's fine if you wanna07/29/2015 - 2:05am
Mattsworknamediscussed, while not what I liked and not the methods I wanted to see used, were , in a sense, the effort of thsoe game consuming masses to hold what they felt was supposed to be there press accountable for what many of them felt was Betrayal07/29/2015 - 2:03am
MattsworknameAs we say, the gamers are dead article set of a firestorm among the game consuming populace, who, ideally, were the intended audiance for sites like Kotaku, Polygon, Et all. As such, the turn about on them and the attacking of them, via the metods07/29/2015 - 2:03am
MattsworknameAndrew: Thats kind fo the issue at hand, Accountable is a matter of context. For a media group, it means accountable to its reader. to a goverment, to it's voters and tax payer, to a company, to it's share holders.07/29/2015 - 2:02am
Andrew EisenAnd again, you keep saying "accountable." What exactly does that mean? How is Gamasutra not accounting for the editorial it published?07/28/2015 - 11:47pm
Andrew EisenMatt - I disagree with your 9:12 and 9:16 comment. There are myriad ways to address content you don't like. And they're far easier to execute in the online space.07/28/2015 - 11:47pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Banning in the legal sense? Not that I'm aware but there have certainly been groups of gamers who have worked towards getting content they don't like removed.07/28/2015 - 11:45pm
DanJAlexander's editorial was and continues to be grossly misrepresented by her opponents. And if you don't like a site, you stop reading it - same as not watching a tv show. They get your first click, but not your second.07/28/2015 - 11:40pm
TechnogeekYes, because actively trying to convince advertisers to influence the editorial content of media is a perfectly acceptable thing to do, especially for a movement that's ostensibly about journalistic ethics.07/28/2015 - 11:02pm
Mattsworknameanother07/28/2015 - 9:16pm
Mattsworknameyou HAVE TO click on it. So they get the click revenue weather you like what it says or not. as such, the targeting of advertisers most likely seemed like a good course of action to those who wanted to hold those media groups accountable for one reason07/28/2015 - 9:16pm
MattsworknameBut, when you look at online media, it's completely different, with far more options, but far few ways to address issues that the consumers may have. In tv, you don't like what they show, you don't watch. But in order to see if you like something online07/28/2015 - 9:12pm
MattsworknameIn tv, and radio, ratings are how it works. your ratings determine how well you do and how much money you an charge.07/28/2015 - 9:02pm
Mattsworknameexpect to do so without someone wanting to hold you to task for it07/28/2015 - 9:00pm
MattsworknameMecha: I don't think anyone was asking for Editoral changes, what they wanted was to show those media groups that if they were gonna bash there own audiance, the audiance was not gonna take it sitting down. you can write what you want, but you can't07/28/2015 - 8:56pm
MattsworknameAndrew, Im asking as a practical question, Have gamers, as a group, ever asked for a game, or other item, to be banned. Im trying to see if theres any cases anyone else remembers cause I cant find or remember any.07/28/2015 - 8:55pm
Andrew EisenAs mentioned, Gamasutra isn't a gaming site, it's a game industry site. I don't feel it's changed its focus at all. Also, I don't get the sense that the majority of the people who took issue with that one opinion piece were regular readers anyway.07/28/2015 - 8:43pm
