MS Kidnapping and Rape Arrest
A Mississippi woman has been charged with kidnapping teenage boys and engaging in sexual relationships with them both.
Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson says 31-year-old Kristen Hall of Smithville was arrested by U.S. marshals in Denton, Texas, on March 24, four days after she allegedly fled Mississippi with one of the boys.
Dickinson says Hall is charged in Mississippi with two counts of statutory rape and kidnapping. Hall was released on $75,000 bond after an appearance in justice court earlier this month.
Hall is being charged in Denton, Texas, with two counts of sexual battery against a minor. She is free on $30,000 bond on those charges.
Dickinson says the case will be presented to an Itawamba County grand jury.
