A 40-year-old mother from Saugus, Mass., is looking at four years in prison and three years of probation after pleading guilty on Monday to two counts of child rape, two counts of child enticement, two counts of dissemination of obscene matter to a minor and one count of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14 on Monday.
Heather Salines, a married mother of two, was accused of raping two teenage boys, one of whom dated her daughter, according to NECN. But wait, there’s more. The teens were twin brothers.
The Boston Herald reported that the first sexual assault occurred at Saline’s home in Feb. 2014.
“Prosecutors said they could have proven that in February 2014 Salines coaxed a 14-year-boy, who was staying in her home, into her room where she sexually assaulted him. After he left, prosecutors said she bombarded his phone with lewd text messages including naked pictures,” the report reads.
A month later, she slept with his twin brother.
Here’s how the second illicit encounter began, according to Wicked Local:
The case came to light after administrators at Belmonte Middle School discovered the 15-year-old boy had been sharing nude photos of the woman, a married mother of two, with fellow students, according to court records.
Salines arrived at the school on the same day to pick up the boy, walking into the school when he didn’t come out.
While speaking with police in Saugus and Danvers, where part of the hotel is located, Salines allegedly confessed she had sent the nude photos to the boy and had continued an emotional relationship over several weeks that led to them having sex in a Doubletree Hilton hotel room on March 19.
It was after the second encounter that the first victim came forward with allegations.
The prosecution focused on the fact that the Salines acted as a mother to the teens after their mother passed away.
“When I looked at him, he looked like a 20-year-old kid,” she told police. “I didn’t look at him like a normal 15-year-old boy. He was very mature for his age.”
Salines will have to register as a sex offender when she gets out of prison.
She and her husband have gotten a divorce.
