DEXTER, MO (KAIT) – A Dexter woman faces second-degree statutory rape after police say they discovered she had sex with an underage teenager and sent him explicit photos.

According to Stoddard County Sheriff Department, 37-year-old Larissa Hurley is being held at the Stoddard County Sheriff's Department after the Stoddard County Juvenile Department was called to the Dexter School in reference to a statutory rape.

Police say the 16-year-old told them he had intercourse with Hurley in her backyard while her husband was indoors asleep. They say he was able to describe what she was wearing down to the color of her fingernails when the incident happened.

Investigators say the teen also had two explicit photos saved on his phone that she had allegedly sent to him the night before.

Hurley admitted to having sex with the teenager and to sending the photos but said the boy led her to believe he was 17, and she never checked to confirm his age, say police.

Hurley is currently being held in lieu of $25,000 cash only bond.

Second-degree statutory rape is a class C Felony.
