(NECN) - A Massachusetts mother faces rape charges for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old boy.
Prosecutors say 38-year-old Heather Salines of Saugus met the boy through her teenage daughter. According to prosecutors, Salines had been a mother figure to the boy, who had lost his own mother.
The case came to light after school officials learned the boy had been showing another student nude photos Salines had sent to his cell phone.
She pleaded not guilty in court Wednesday and was freed on $7,500 bail. She's due back in court next month.
