A woman is behind bars, accused of having sex with a 15-year-old boy on more than one occasion.
Cathy Garner of Newport was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with statutory rape of a 15 year old, a felony.
Carteret County deputies say the boy's mother came to them after suspecting the 28-year-old Garner was having a relationship with her son. Deputies say Garner was a friend of the victim's family.
She's jailed on a $50,000 bond.
