When the sexual contact took place, authorities said the victim was only 16.

The alleged incidents, according to SI Live, began on Oct. 31 of last year and stretched until Jan. 9. Along with the 30 counts, Mahoney is also charged with four counts of a criminal sexual act in the third degree for oral sex and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.

UPI said Mahoney was busted after the couple was spotted by the victim’s ex-girlfriend at a local pizza place. Reportedly the ex called police.

Mahoney does have an attorney and she was in court Monday after her arrest. She is expected to be back before a judge on Dec. 2.
