Woman charged with sexual assault of 9-year-old boy
Newport News, Va. - Nukia Shaneece Barnes, 18, is facing several charges after being accused of molesting a 9-year-old boy in her home.
Barnes has been charged with aggravated sexual battery, forcible sodomy and crimes against nature.
The victim’s mother told police that Barnes molested the child. There was a delay in the initial reporting because the mother says the child did not tell her about the incident.
Barnes was arrested on Saturday evening and police say the incident happened when Barnes invited the child into her home.
