A pregnant Alabama woman who signed up for Medicaid and listed a 14-year-old boy as the father of the unborn child has been booked with raping the teenager and other offenses. Mekenzie Leigh Guffey, 19, admitted to having sex with the boy multiple times in her car in a remote area of Hollywood.
The 19yr old is now facing charges of second-degree rape, second-degree sex abuse, enticing a child for immoral purposes, traveling to meet a child for an unlawful sex act, possession of child pornography and dissemination of child pornography, according to investigations.
“She was proud of him being the father until she found out we were going to become involved,” Hollywood Police Chief Jason Hepler said.
The Department of Human Resources and police began investigating Guffey after she applied for Medicaid this month and identified the boy as the baby’s father. Guffey’s relationship with the boy began in December after they were introduced through a mutual friend at McDonald’s in Scottsboro, police said.
She was taken into custody on Friday and was released from the Jackson County Jail today on $25,300 bail.
