The McLennan County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Waco woman Tuesday after they said a 16-year-old boy acknowledged he was in a sexual relationship with the woman.
Olivia Whitt, 21, of Waco, was booked in McLennan County Jail on a second-degree felony charge of sexual assault of a child.
According to an arrest affidavit, a detective with the sheriff’s office received a report involving the sexual assault of a child on April 17.
The unidentified boy acknowledged to a family member that he was having a sexual relationship with Whitt after photos of the two kissing and a picture of a pregnancy test were found, according to the affidavit.
According to the report, the detective attempted to contact Whitt, who refused to cooperate, and sought an arrest warrant as the 16-year-old did not deny the allegations when confronted by family members.
Whitt was released from jail Wednesday after posting a $10,000 bond.
