38-year-old Debra Ayala Tapia was arrested March 23, 2010 on suspicion of felony lewd and lascivious acts with a child ages 14 and 15 and felony oral copulation with a child under 16 years of age (California Penal Code Section 288). Her bail was set at $100,000.
Tapia is said to have had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy in the Santa Ana neighborhood of Orange County and then having his child in November 2009. The boy's mother learned of the relationship when she found letters that Tapia wrote to her son. She then talked to her son and found out that he had sexual intercourse with Tapia, who was married at the time with three children of her own.
