20-year-old Alicia Gaston, of North Fairmount, Cincinnati, Ohio, has been charged with rape following the accusation that she had sex with her boyfriend’s 7-year-old son.

According to police, Gaston confessed to engaging in sexual intercourse with the child on April 10 at around 8 p.m. in the 200 block of Craft Street in Winton Place, reports Cincinnati.com.

It has not been released who initially reported the alleged crime to authorities.

Gaston, who is being held on $75,000 bond, has been ordered to stay away from the boy.

Gaston’s lawyer, Greg Cohen, who said he was just standing in for another lawyer who will ultimately handle the case, expressed skeptism in court that a 7-year-old child could physically engage in sexual intercourse and said mental issues are involved, according to a report by Cincinnati.com.

The case goes on to a grand jury for possible indictment on May 29.
