24-Year-Old Woman Poses as 17-Year-Old Boy, Tricks 15-Year-Old Girl Into Sex images via The Smoking Gun It’s common knowledge that on the Internet, men are men, women are men, and teenage girls are FBI agents. So what do we make of this bizarre masquerade in which a 24-year-old woman posed as a 17-year-boy to con a 15-year-old girl into a 19-month-long online romance that culminated in two successful sexual encounters? Carissa Hads of Massachusetts, posing as a 17-year-old boy named “James Puryear Wilson,” reportedly began an Internet-based affair with a girl from West Virginia in October 2010, according to the Smoking Gun. After two sexual encounters, including one chaperoned by her mother and one that involved a “fake, flesh-colored penis” (see below), Hads was arrested on May 24 after the teenager and her mother wised up and began working with the police. On Friday, Hads was ordered held without bond — she faces charges of coercion or enticement of a minor and could do 30 years behind bars. Hads sent the teenager two cell phones for communication, as well as notebooks and journals for old-fashioned correspondence (and a brand new Kindle Fire!). The teenager reportedly took naked pictures of herself to send to Hads, including close-ups of her lady netherparts. The Smoking Gun has more outrageous details: In December 2011, after communicating for 14 months, “Wilson” asked to meet “A.L.” in person. A subsequent rendezvous was arranged by the girl’s mother, who accompanied her daughter (and two other teenage girls) to meet “Wilson” at a Pennsylvania motel about 100 miles from the family’s West Virginia residence. “Wilson,” who claimed to have flown from Massachusetts to the nearby Pittsburgh airport, stayed at the same motel “in a separate room paid for by A.L.’s mother,” according to the affidavit sworn by West Virginia State Trooper Robert Talkington. During the group’s stay at the motel, “‘Wilson’ digitally penetrated A.L.’s vagina,” Talkington charged. Two months later, “Wilson” flew to West Virginia, and was picked up by the girl’s mother, who transported “Wilson” to her home. During that five-day stay in late-February, “Wilson” and “A.L.” “engaged in sexual intercourse,” according to the affidavit. In a May 8 interview with law enforcement agents, the girl further described the sexual encounter in her home with “Wilson.” The teenager said that “Wilson,” who did not undress, “pulled his ‘penis’ through his unzipped pants, and held on to the base of the ‘penis’ during the sexual encounter.” The girl, who said the act was videotaped, “described the ‘penis’ as flesh-colored.” The whole charade began to unravel when one of the teenager’s friends called shenanigans on Hads’ “Wilson” persona, and Hads (acting as Wilson) threatened the friend’s life. Missing from the story is the role of the teenager’s mother. No matter how well-intentioned, this woman brought her underage daughter across state lines to meet a sexual predator. Pro tip: If you meet a 5’4, 100-pound boy on the Internet who has an aunt that looks just like him, you might want to get some more evidence of authenticity. Follow us!
