This is sick. Rachel Ann Hicks flew across the country to have sex with a boy she met playing video games. Can you even stomach this news, Hollymoms?
Be prepared, this is hard to handle. Rachel Ann Hicks, 36, has been arrested under suspicion of child molestation and rape. The mother-of-two befriended a 13-year-old boy in a live chat room on the gaming system X-Box and then preceded to fly from California to Maryland to have sexual relations with him. If this isn’t disgusting, I don’t know what is. Can you believe this?
Rachel, who lives in Lake Forest, CA, met the boy playing video games over the Internet, where she gave him her fake name and said she was 23-years-old… like that’s any better. The sheriff’s office says the online relationship progressed from gaming to phone calls, texting, emails and sending explicit photos and movies between each other. Rachel then flew to the boy’s home in Maryland where they had sex over the Thanksgiving weekend. Disturbing, I know. I have an 18-year-old brother who spends a lot of his time on X-Box live and after hearing about this, I feel sick to my stomach. Can you imagine this ever happening to your family, Hollymoms?
Soon after this, the boy’s family discovered “romantic” texts on his cell phone, which led him to ultimately confess the truth. After tracking Rachel down, police served a search warrant on her home on Friday, Jan. 7. where she was arrested without incident. And if this isn’t bad enough, authorities say that based on further investigation, police are trying to identify a second victim, an 18-year-old California boy.
