A mum allegedly raped her own son, aged 12, in a bed they shared at the family home before warning him not to tell anyone.
Brittany Rouleau, from Wichita Falls, Texas, US, was charged with aggravated sexual assault on Saturday after the child accused of her of attacking him in 2018.
The boy – who cannot be named for legal reasons – claimed his mum asked him questions about masturbation while taking her own clothes off after he got out of the shower.
Rouleau is accused of ordering her son to also strip naked before she raped him on the bed, telling him he would get in trouble if he told anyone “because you accepted it”.
The accused is 5’8 tall and weighs 236lbs, according to reports.
The school boy had been allegedly told to “go clean himself up” after the attack before telling his mum what happened was wrong and opting to sleep on the sofa.
The alleged incident only came to light two years later when he discussed it with another adult who looks after him, with the guardian then reporting it to police.
Rouleau was then arrested – and initially denied any wrongdoing – after the allegations were repeated by the victim during an interview.
However, the mum is then understood to have confessed to the forced intercourse, reports the Times Record News.
It is also claimed she told a neighbour that she’d had sex with her son.
Alleged paedophile Rouleau – who has previous arrests for speeding and filing a false report – is being held at Wichita County Jail on a $100,000 bond, with a court date not yet scheduled.
