Woman accused of paying 15-year-old boy for sex

A woman from Port St. Lucie is accused of paying a child hundreds of dollars for sex, police say.

A woman from Port St. Lucie is accused of paying a child hundreds of dollars for sex, police say.

Police arrested 38-year-old Rebecca McGraw Thursday on five counts of sexual activity with a minor. They say the relationship began a little under a year ago at the Sail Pointe Apartments, now known as the Water Leaf Apartments.

Brian Miller has been living at the apartment complex for about a year and was surprised to hear what had been happening in his community, especially since he has three young boys himself.

β€œSick. It’s just disgusting that someone could even have a mindset to do that,” Miller said.

Authorities say the investigation began after Port St. Lucie Police conducted a follow up investigation into prior accusations of child abuse and sexual molestation.

According to Port St. Lucie Police, detectives learned McGraw, an assistant manager at the Sail Pointe Apartments, had a sexual relationship with a child at the complex.

Police said she would pay the child up to $300 for the sexual encounters. Investigators said she'd also let him use her debit and credit cards, and drive her car.

CBS12 spoke with a neighbor who lived across the street from McGraw. She said McGraw had children, and that other children were constantly congregating outside of her apartment.

Police say McGraw moved out of the Sail Pointe Apartments around February, but continued to meet the boy at an undisclosed location until the relationship ended at the beginning of April.

McGraw, according to Port St. Lucie Police spokesman Robert Vega, admitted to at least five sex acts with the child.

She's being held on bonds totaling $125,000.
