Caridad Munoz, 24, is accused of coercing her boyfriend’s 15-year-old nephew into having sex with her Nov. 25, while staying at his family’s home on the 5900 block of W. 26th Ave. in Hialeah. NBC 6's Justin Finch reports.
Hialeah Police have arrested a 24-year-old woman for seducing a teen boy.
Caridad Munoz, 24, is accused of coercing her boyfriend’s 15-year-old nephew into having sex with her Nov. 25, while staying at his family’s home on the 5900 block of W. 26th Ave. in Hialeah.
The teen said he saw Munoz smoking marijuana before she made her way into his locked bedroom, where she and the teen had sex.
The 15-year-old said he used a condom that he found in his wallet before they had intercourse. Once finished, he told detectives, Munoz requested oral sex from him, and after their encounter, he said Munoz placed the used condom and the wrapper in her purse.
After her Miranda rights were read, police said Munoz made statements supporting her accuser’s claims. She now faces charges of lewd and lascivious battery of a minor, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
“He cannot legally consent to having sex with an adult. She's 24, he's 15, and now, she's in trouble for that,” explained Hialeah Police spokesman Carl Zogby. “If convicted, she could serve up to 10 years and have to register as a sex offender.”
Munoz’s bond was set at $32,000, and it wasn’t immediately known whether she has an attorney. As of Tuesday night, authorities said it did not appear Munoz has a prior criminal record.
