Mom has unlawful sex, baby with daughter's boyfriend, 16, police say


A Santa Ana woman accused of having unlawful sexual intercourse with her daughter's teenage boyfriend is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.

Investigators suspect that Mayra Gonzalez, 32, also gave birth to the teen's baby, said Cpl. Anthony Bertagna of the Santa Ana Police Department. The Orange County District Attorney's Office has accused Gonzalez of having sex with the boy on six occasions between July 1, 2011, and Dec. 24, 2011, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

Neighbors at Gonzalez's apartment complex alerted the boy's parents about the relationship, police said.

Gonzalez told police when she was arrested that she was in love with the 16-year-old boy.

"She was aware of the fact that he was a minor," Bertagna said.

Gonzalez is charged with six felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor under 16 and two felony counts of oral copulation with a minor under 18.

If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of seven years and eight months in state prison and possible lifetime sex-offender registration. She was being held on $20,000 bail.

Arraignment is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the Central Jail in Santa Ana.
