Bell County Jail Ashley Rae Ortega: Parents of victim made initial outcry to police.
According to an arrest affidavit, no force was involved and the boy never made outcry, but somehow his parents figured out something was amiss.
They confronted their son, and the boy admitted to his mother that he had sex with Ortega when he was left alone with her on Friday. According to KDHD, when confronted, Ortega initially denied that the assault took place, and then admitted that it had and attempted to reassure the mother by claiming that it was okay because she was STD-free.
Police believe that the assault was an isolated incident.
Ortega's bond was set at a whopping $75,000. Five years ago the former Cypress resident was sentenced to 35 days in Harris County Jail after her second DWI conviction.
