A Minnesota woman has been charged with driving to Vermont and sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy.
The Bennington Banner reports 21-year-old Rosa Maria Pastrana, of Staples, Minnesota, pleaded not guilty last week to charges including repeated aggravated sexual assault and sexual assault on a victim less than 16 years old.
The boy's mother contacted Bennington police last month saying she was concerned her son was having an online relationship with a woman.
