SURF CITY, N.C. - A 20-year-old North Carolina woman is in jail after being accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old boy she met through a mutual friend.
Taylor Ashton Moseley, a student at East Carolina University, faces multiple charges, according to Surf City police, WWAY reported. She was placed under a $225,000 bond.
Police said the boy and Moseley met a Surf City bar called JM’s Place, where Moseley and the mutual friend also met.
The relationship reportedly came to light when the 14-year-old’s mother became aware her son was seeing Moseley, and she called the Pender County Department of Social Services, which forwarded the case to the police. The relationship allegedly took place in May.
Police say Moseley turned herself in to the magistrate’s office Monday.
According to WWAY, Moseley is charged with indecent liberties with a child; statutory rape of a 13-, 14- or 15-year-old; and statutory sex offense with a child.
