DENVER – A 33-year-old woman faces sexual assault of a child charges after allegedly having two children with a teenage boy she met in a park.
Alicia Hernandez, 33, met the boy at Garfield Park in 2011 or 2012. He was 14 years old at the time, according to the Denver District Attorney’s Office, though an affidavit for Hernandez's arrest says the boy told her he was 18.
Over the course of the relationship, the two eventually started having sex and Hernandez had two of the boy’s children. The first was born in June 2013 and the second child was born in January 2015.
Hernandez has been charged with sexual assault on a child, a felony, and sexual assault with a 10-year age difference. The relationship was reported to Denver police by the Denver Department of Human Services in early September.
The boy is now 18.
The status of the children is unclear at the moment, though Denver7 will update this story as more information comes available.
Hernandez was released from custody after posting a $50,000 bond. She is next scheduled to appear in court Oct. 18.
