FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) — A 32-year-old Bloomfield woman has been charged with four counts of criminal sexual penetration of a child.

Police say Amanda Polanco had sex with a 15-year-old boy at least four times in March and April. She was arrested May 2 and released on bond from the San Juan County Adult Detention Center.

Polanco appeared in Farmington District Court Monday. Her arraignment was postponed for two weeks.

According to court records, Polanco was friends with the boy's family, and the boy's father notified police after learning of the sexual relationship.

Court records show the boy told police they planned to be together openly when he turned 18.

Sexual Assault Services of Northwest New Mexico executive director Eleana Butler said it's rare for women to commit sex crimes in the U.S. and even more rare locally.
