Woman accused of having sex with teen boy staying at shelter
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a woman who worked for the Child Saving Institute in Omaha has been accused of having sex with a teenage boy who was staying at the institute’s shelter.
Douglas County prosecutor Brenda Beadle says 23-year-old Hanna Dickerson will be charged Friday with sexual abuse of a dependent. It’s unclear whether Dickerson has an attorney. She lives in Neola, Iowa.
The boy is a ward of the state who turned 17 in July. He said in an August interview that he and Dickerson engaged in sex several times in July and August.
An institute spokeswoman has declined to describe Dickerson’s job duties. Dickerson’s no longer employed there.
