Rachel Ann Hicks, 37-year-old woman from Lake Forest, California, has pleaded guilty to second-degree rape of a 13-year-old boy and was sentenced to 20 years in prison with eight years suspended.

Hicks, 37, of the 21000 block of Osterman Road in Lake Forest, Calif., was indicted in March 2011 on two counts of second-degree rape and one count each of second-degree sex offense and second-degree assault and she pleaded guilty June 2 to a single count of second-degree rape.

Police started investigating the case after the victims father found suspicious text messages on the boy's phone and took the case to the Harford County Child Advocacy Center. The father participated in the investigation which resulted in a telephone call being placed to Ms. Hicks, who admitted that she met the boy through the game, and traveled to Bel Air where she engaged in sexual relations with the boy.

Hicks, a mother of three, met the boy while playing the game X-Box live, then contacted him through email and eventually obtained a cell phone number. She traveled from Florida, where her parents reside, to the boy’s home in Bel Air, Maryland, the day after Thanksgiving, 2010. She had made arrangements with the boy in advance to meet and let her into the hishome during the middle of the night, while his family was asleep. They went into his room and began playing video games until she sexually assaulted him. After raping the child Hicks returned to California.
