Belchertown Woman Charged with Raping Teen Boy

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) — A Belchertown woman has pleaded not guilty to having sex with her friend’s 13-year-old son.

Amanda Wilson was released on personal recognizance after pleading not guilty Wednesday to four counts of aggravated rape of a child.

Prosecutors say the 27-year-old Wilson had sex with the boy at his Amherst home on several occasions while his mother was at work or visiting relatives.

Some of the alleged sexual encounters took place in June, when the rest of the boy’s family was out of the country and he was staying with Wilson.

Wilson was also barred from any contact with the boy, and any unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 16.

Wilson’s lawyer says she is not as flight risk and has no criminal record.
