A 26-year-old Killeen woman was in Bell County Jail on Tuesday night after police said she had sex with a 14-year-old.

Ashley Rae Ortega was charged with sexual assault in connection with an alleged sexual act she engaged in with a teenaged boy while staying at his mother's house last week.

The sexual act was consensual, according to an arrest affidavit. The teenager told his mother that he had sex with Ortega on Friday after his mother left the house.

Ortega initially denied that anything happened, but later told the victim's mother she should not worry because Ortega has no sexually transmitted diseases.

Police later interviewed the 14-year-old, who told police of the sexual encounter with Ortega, the affidavit states.
