A policewoman has landed in trouble and is said to be facing jail time for allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old boy while working as a teaching assistant. Maria Velez, 25, was said to have had sex multiple times with the underage pupil for almost a year.
But the wannabe FBI agent avoided trial in Cleveland, Ohio, US, in a plea deal with prosecutors, yesterday.
The most serious charges of sexual battery were reduced as she pleaded guilty to attempted felonious assault, unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and attempted tampering with evidence.
She could be locked up for up to nine years when Judge Brendan Sheehan sentences her on May 21.
Velez agreed to resign from the police and must register as a sex offender every six months for 25 years.
She became a cop after quitting her job at Clark Elementary School in December, 2015.
The perv cop had a sexual relationship with the student during the previous nine months, said prosecutors.
She was suspended without pay after the scandal broke last September when the boy and his mum went to police.
Velez later called the two and told them to lie to hide the relationship, prosecutor Matthew Meyer told yesterday’s hearing.
She was assigned to patrols in Cleveland’s Fifth District before her arrest. It has not been disclosed where Velez’s trysts with the lad took place.
