Joppa Woman Charged In Sexual Relationship With Teen

Police say the Joppa woman met a Florida teen through a video game.

A Joppa woman was arrested and charged Thursday in connection with an illegal sexual relationship with a 16-year-old Florida boy.

Lisa Elaine Carroll, 39, of the 500 block of Renee Drive in Joppa, was charged April 5 with nine counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and one count of traveling to meet a minor, according to a release from Maryland State Police. She was arrested on a warrant from Florida.

According to the release, "while 16 is the age of consent in Maryland, it is unlawful for a 16-year-old in Florida to engage in a sexual relationship with anyone over the age 23."

During an interview with investigators from state police and the Harford County Child Advocacy Center, Carroll allegedly admitted to having a sexual relationship with the Florida boy, according to state police.

The charges stem from an alleged sexual relationship with a Florida teen Carroll met through a video game.

Carroll and the Florida teen met while playing the video game “War 2 Glory” and started communicating in late 2011, according to state police.

The relationship progressed through Skype, an online video chat service and ultimately to personal meetings with Carroll driving to Florida in early 2012 and again in March, according to the release.

Carroll and the teen became engaged to be married in December 2011, according to a release.

she may not look so pretty in that photo, but she cleans up well....I know her personally & lived with her & her hubby for over a year.

I don't think even Mary Kay herself could make this woman attractive.

to Wings: well I happen to know different.... let's see you walk a mile in her shoes, deal with all she has been dealing with, & then stuff you in county jail clothes & see how well you look...

My dear Patch readers, remember, this is a serious charge and a number of people are impacted by the case, from the accused to the alleged victim to family and friends on both sides. This is not a beauty contest.

to James: I also know Lisa personally....have for almost 15 years. One big thing you need to learn about Lisa is that most of what she's been dealing with she brought on herself, and has no one to blame but herself. She's been like that since I've known her. And Lisa only cares about Lisa. She never used to be that way, but she is now.

TY Ma'am. This is a Lady with many personal issues that need to be dealt with...unfortunately, the prison system in the USA will not address these issues...they only address the punishment & the laws that were broken. I know she needs psychiatric help but unfortunately, that will not happen in a Florida Prison. :(

Life is a beauty contest. That's why the good jobs go to the good looking. And the ugly people do radio.
