UCL Doctoral Research Position on Social Enterprises and Sustainability in Belgium, 2018

Woman arrested for sleeping with 14-year-old boy 50 times

A woman charged has been charged with statutory ra*pe after she was arrested for having sex with a 14-year-old boy 50 times.

The victim happens to be her teenage daughter’s boyfriend.

38-year-old Jamie Tice, from Tennessee, was charged in November 2017 with five counts of statutory rape by an authority figure after a friend revealed that Tice told her she was having an affair with the boy, 15.

During a two-day trial in Sumner County Criminal Court last week, a jury of six men and six women heard testimony from the victim, who is now 17, as well as Tice.

Both claimed that the sexual relationship started in December of 2016 when the boy was 14, and continued until October 2017.

The victim estimated that the two had 40 to 50 sexual encounters while Tice estimated that they slept together 20 times.

Tice had said that the boy forced himself on her during the first encounter.

She also said that he forced her into having sex with him each subsequent time by threatening to tell her husband and daughter.

However the boy had testified that the relationship was consensual.

‘He would go back and forth between these personalities and it was a daily thing,’ Tice tearfully told jurors.

‘I was caught between the worst rock and hard place in my entire life,’ she said. ‘I never, not one time made an advance at [him].’

After being confronted about the allegations, Tice went to the victim’s residence and admitted to engaging in a sexual relationship with the victim to his parents, according to the affidavits seen by the Hendersonville Standard.

Tice’s daughter and said that she and the boy attended the same school, Metro Christian Academy , and had dated for about a year-and-a-half beginning in August of 2016.

She claimed that she and her mother would often give the boy a ride home from school. They also attended social functions together with the church’s youth group.

Jurors found Tice guilty of two counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and three counts of aggravated statutory rape. Tice is due to be sentenced on March 22.
