Deer Park woman charged with sex assault of family member

Pasadena police have charged a 43-year-old woman with sexual assault of a family member after police say the victim made an outcry years after the incidents.

According to court documents, it started in about 2009 when the victim was roughly 16 years old. He told police that while he was in Texas Children's Hospital, his relative performed a sex act on him. A hospital nurse caught Peggy Phillips in bed with the teen and yelled at her to get out of bed, according to court documents.

The victim, now 22, told investigators that he moved in with Phillips and the two had sex hundreds of times.

According to the court charging document, the defendant Phillips texted naked pictures of herself to the boy.

Phillips, of Deer Park, is charged with sexual assault of a child under 17. Bail was set at $30,000.
