I use Xbox Live for yelling at 10-year-old British kids when I play Fifa. You may use it for galvanising your Halo clan. Rachel Ann Hicks allegedly used it for seducing a 13-year-old boy and having sex with him. Gross!
Rachel Ann Hicks, a 36-year-old mother of three, allegedly posed as a 23-year-old girl in her cyber- and then not cyber-relationship with a 13-year-old Maryland boy. What started with Xbox Live chatting eventually progressed to "phone calls, texts and emails that sometimes included Hicks sending the boy sexually explicit images and movies," according to NBC.
Local authorities say Hicks visited the boy IRL when she went to Florida to visit family for Thanksgiving. "She met the victim at his home and while his parents were asleep she had sex with him," Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said. Hicks was arrested on suspicion of rape and child molestation and is currently being held without bail. Kids: keep your pervy mums off Xbox Live! [NBC via The Register]
