OFFICIALS: DSS Tip Leads To Pitt County Sex Crimes Arrest

A woman is facing sex crime charges after the sheriff’s office says it was tipped off by social services.

The Pitt County Sheriff’s Office says that 20-year-old Juana Sutton has been charged with statutory rape and indecent liberties with a child. Officials say the victim is a boy between 4 and 6 years younger than the suspect.

Sutton was arrested after the Department of Social Services contacted the sheriff’s office with evidence of an inappropriate relationship between the two, according to officials.

Sutton was booked in the Pitt County Detention Center on Friday and is being held on a $200,000 secured bond.
