The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office arrested a 25-year-old Florida woman they say became impregnated by a young boy in 2014.

Marissa Mowry of Port Richey, Fla. and the victim were at a Hillsborough County residence in January 2014 when they had sex that resulted in a pregnancy, according to officials.

At the time, Mowry was 22-years-old and the victim 11-years-old.

Mowry gave birth to a child in October 2014.

Officials said Mowry and the victim continued with their sexual relationship multiple times while the boy was between the ages of 11- and 14-years-old.

After detectives completed their investigation, they secured an arrest warrant.

Mowry was arrested Tuesday afternoon without incident, charged with sexual battery and transported to the Hillsborough County Jail.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's Child Protective Division is assisting in the investigation. The 3-year-old child is being placed with a responsible adult as the investigation continues.
