N.D. woman accused of having sex with underage boys
JAMESTOWN, N.D. – A 26-year-old woman faces criminal charges after allegedly having sex with a series of boys ages 14 to 17 she met by using a smartphone app.
Trisha Lynn Bliss of Jamestown pleaded not guilty in Stutsman County District Court on Thursday to two counts of gross sexual imposition, a Class AA felony. She also was charged Friday in Stutsman County with an additional charge of corruption of a minor, a Class C felony.
Jamestown police were investigating the allegations that Bliss allowed a 19-year-old man to use her daughter’s bedroom to have sex with a 14-year-old girl.
Bliss told investigators she met the man through Skout, a meet-up application for smartphones.
Court documents say Bliss later admitted to meeting and having sex with boys who were under 18, though she initially thought they were older than 18.
