A 25-year-old babysitter in Connecticut is being charged with sexual assault after a 10-year-old boy said she forced him to have sex with her.
According to reports, in August, Marybeth Rataic sexually assaulted the boy, who happened to be her friend’s son, while she was babysitting him and his siblings. The alleged incident occurred while the victim’s mother was in the hospital giving birth.
Rataic was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with three counts of first-degree sexual assault and seven counts of “risk of injury to a minor/impairing the morals of children.”
In the warrant for Rataic’s arrest, the boy told police she took off his clothes and encouraged the inappropriate contact, which led to having sex on a couch in the boy’s living room.
At the time of the assaults, Rataic stayed at her friend’s house overnight and slept in the same bed as the victim. The two allegedly had sex then, too, while his brothers slept in the same room.
