A Centralia woman is in federal custody for allegedly having sex with a New Jersey teen she met through the online video game "World of Warcraft."
Jessica Pearce, 33, has been charged with child pornography. She taped herself having sex with a 16-year-old boy after she had carried on a sexual relationship with him for years, federal prosecutors say.
Pearce was arrested in September 2009 after the boy was found at a highway rest stop. Authorities claim she had flown the boy to Washington, according to charging documents in U.S. District Court at Tacoma cited in a story by seattlepi.com.
Pearce was arrested again Tuesday after another complaint was filed charging her with possession of child pornography. She is at the Federal Detention Center at SeaTac and is expected to appear in court today, according to seattlepi.com.
