Mom Accused of Sex with Son She Found on Facebook
Mistie Atkinson, 32, a California woman, accused of having sex with her estranged teen son she pursued through Facebook could be locked up for less than 2-1/2 years, according to reports.
A law enforcement source told the Daily News earlier this month that she first contacted her biological son online late last year, when he was 16. The messages became inappropriate, the source said.
Atkinson reportedly hadn’t seen the boy, who was living with his father, since he was 2. He’s now 17.
In March, authorities reportedly found the woman with her son in a hotel room, and she was arrested and charged with incest, oral copulation with a minor, contacting a minor for sex and sending harmful material. The Lake County woman allegedly sent naked photos of herself to her son.
Court filings also say police found videos on the boy’s phone showing him engaged in sexual activity with Atkinson. His father filed a restraining order in November, about two months after he said Atkinson began talking with the boy on Facebook and over the phone.
“She started to have a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship with him, not a mother-and-son relationship,” the man said, according to court documents. “It got to a point where their conversation began talking about harming me and killing off her boyfriend she was (now) living with.”
She remains in jail, reports said.
