35-year-old woman charged with seducing minor on World of Warcraft

A Michigan resident and twice-married mother-of-five has been charged with “using the Internet to entice a minor into sexual activity”, after she seduced a 15-year-old boy while playing World of Warcraft.

35-year-old Angie L. Jenkins told the teenager she was 21, while he swore he was 20. If this all sounds a little familiar, well, that’s because it is.

The unlikely couple first met online while playing World of Warcraft in 2009. This led to numerous emails and phonecalls being exchanged between the two, a real-life meeting, and then culminated in sex in a parked car in New York, the boy’s home.

According to the Buffalo News, Jenkins pushed for the meeting in real life and also “initiated the sexual contact” when the get-together took place. The boy even admitted to being 15, but Jenkins told him his age didn’t matter. Her case will be heard later this month.

Oh, and Kotaku noticed an amusing/unfortunate coincidence – Angie L. Jenkins. Heh.
