Woman Consummated Xbox Live Seduction Over Thanksgiving Trip, Say Cops

Woman Consummated Xbox Live Seduction Over Thanksgiving Trip, Say Cops

Cops say a woman, posing as a 23-year-old over Xbox Live, traveled from California to Maryland over Thanksgiving and had sex with a 13-year-old boy she’d met while his parents were sleeping. She’s in jail now.

Rachel Ann Hicks, 36, is being held without bail on suspicion of rape and child molestation. Police say the liaison was discovered after the 13-year-old’s family found “romantic” text messages on his phone. Hicks apparently also sent him X-rated pictures and movies during an online relationship that began in September and quickly escalated.

Here’s the kicker, she’d given the boy a fake name (and age, of course) but “with help from federal authorities,” she was found and arrested. That sounds like a subpoena either of phone or Xbox Live server records.

Hicks is suspected of molesting another teenage victim, whom investigators are trying to identify.

  • This is quite interesting to my mind. Especially as to why the kid didn’t just “ignore” the older user when she started making advances.

    Actually I wouldn’t be surprised if in the future this sort of thing will lead to people having to register properly on Xbox Live, with proof of ID, and then having some lock out procedure where people over 30 cannot chat with people under 18.

    • That sounds incredibly idiotic, not even Microsoft would do that. If there is any age lockout system with strangers, it would be between minors and adults. And even then, you could just create an account without an ID and sign up as a minor.

    • He didn’t ignore it because he’s a 13 year old male? Do you remember the kind of hormone-fueled thoughts that drowned almost every other rational thought back when you were that age?

  • * Only nice if the perpetrator is a young, attractive teacher. Not a fat, disgusting mole like the woman probably is.

    It’s not hard getting a teen’s pants off, the effort that went into this is very suspicious.
