SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. — Authorities say a Marana woman is accused of
sexual misconduct with a minor after being found naked in a teenage boy’s
bedroom in San Tan Valley.
Pinal County Sheriff’s officials say 34-year-old Keri Gonzalez also is being
held on suspicion of providing false information to a peace officer.
Deputies were called to the home of the 15-year-old boy after his mother
reported that Gonzalez jumped out of a two-story bedroom window on Jan. 21, after she heard “knocking sounds” coming from her son’s bedroom and went to investigate, according to The Huffington Post.
She told authorities that she had previously warned Gonzalez to stay away from
Gonzalez and the boy engaged in sexual acts twice before the mother caught them.
Sheriff’s officials say Gonzalez suffered a broken ankle from jumping out the
window and allegedly lied to a deputy about where she lived.
In an interview with KSAZ-TV, Gonzalez insisted she was the victim, not the boy.
“My son went over to go see a girl that lives over at that house and we stopped by there and they asked us to come in,” said Gonzalez, who claims she did not serve anyone alcohol and was only supposed to be at the house a short time.
“We were talking and hanging out and one of the guys that was around 18 was pushing me onto the 15-year-old, and continued to do it over 10 times and I was just trying to get my keys from them and leave,” she said. “I said I had a headache and they gave me something and then I started feeling really weird and dizzy and they were like, ‘You can come lay down,’ and so they showed me up to a room.. woke up to banging and screaming at the door and it was the boy’s mom and when I woke up, I didn’t have pants on and while he was talking to her, I jumped out the two story window because I didn’t even know what was going on in my mind at the time. If I was in my right mind, I wouldn’t have jumped out the window.”
Authorities didn’t immediately know Tuesday if Gonzalez has a lawyer yet.
