JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say an 18-year-old Jackson woman is charged with raping a 13-year-old boy at a church.
Jackson police said Hannah Steiner was arraigned Monday on rape and statutory rape charges. She was released on $5,000 bond and has a preliminary hearing set for March 7.
Police said Steiner - a high school student - and the boy were in a room at Skyline Church of Christ on Sunday when they began inappropriately touching each other. Police said the boy tried to stop, but Steiner forced him to have sex.
The Jackson Sun reports that Steiner acknowledged having consensual sex with the boy. Police said the alleged rape happened after Sunday School and before the worship service.
A Jackson City Court clerk said lawyer information for Steiner was not available.
