Sylva woman is charged with statutory rape of 14-year-old

Posted: Monday, December 16, 2013 2:17 pm

Jessica Mae Carpenter, 35, of Aurora Lane, Sylva, has been charged with statutory rape.

Court papers allege she engaged in a sexual act with a 14-year-old male from Jackson County.

A statutory rape charge results when an adult is believed to have engaged in a sex act with a person under the age of 16, regardless of whether the act was consensual.

While investigating a case where alcohol was bought and given to a minor, officers determined other crimes had occurred, and charged Carpenter with statutory rape, according to information released Monday (Dec. 16) by Chief Deputy Chip Hall of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
