Woman Accused of Raping Teen Pleads Not Guilty

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A pregnant Louisville woman accused of
raping a teenage boy she was baby sitting has pleaded not guilty.
Twenty-five-year-old Jessica Smith entered the plea at her
arraignment on Monday. She is charged with three counts of
third-degree rape and one count of third-degree sodomy.
Investigators believe the incidents started last December when
Smith cared for a 15-year-old boy in Bullitt County.
Bullitt County Sheriff's Department Lt. Scotty McGaha says the
incidents allegedly continued through June.
Smith's bond is set at $25,000.

    Where were women like this when I was 15? Man...look what we are missing out on. On another note: She should get as much as a man would if he messed around with a 15 year old girl. If not, the double standard still exists.

    What is wrong with people today? S@x with a minor is ILLEGAL no matter how you look at it. What was going on in her head? Please tell me she's not pregnant by this teenage boy! She's just as sick as a 25 yr old man having s@x with a 15 year girl. Send her to prison for a long time she's nobody special, she's just another sicko for the taxpayers to support.
