An 18-year-old Lexington County woman has been charged with molesting three pre-teen boys in a wooded area of the county.
Kayla Renee Walters-Merrian of Doe Trail Drive, was arrested Tuesday night and is accused of exposing her breast to entice three boys – one 11-year-old and two 12-year-olds – into the woods Aug. 13 and Aug. 14. Once in the woods, the boys “were coerced” into having sexual relations with Walters-Merrian, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department said.
The mother of one of the boys called authorities Tuesday night after she heard of the incident from a sister of one of the boys.
Walters-Merrian was being held at the Lexington County Detention Center Wednesday on three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor. Bail was set at $15,000, the sheriff’s department said.
