Deputies: Woman gives birth to child fathered by 11-year-old

Upon her arrest Tuesday afternoon at Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa, where she works as a waitress, Mowry was charged with sexual battery and transported to the Hillsborough County Jail.

Marissa Ashley Mowry, 25, of Port Richey, was charged with sexual assault and sexual battery on an victim under 12 years of age. Police say Mowry originally claimed the victim raped her while she was "highly medicated" due to a cold but later denied that version of events.

The two had sex multiple times while the victim was between 11 and 14 years old, deputies said. As a result, Mowry got pregnant and gave birth in October 2014.

Her three-year-old child is being placed with a responsible adult as the investigation continues. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office Child Protective Division is also investigating the incident, WFLA added.

Mowry, of Port Richey, was 22-years-old at the time while the victim was 11.

While Marissa is being held at the county jail without bail, it's not clear if authorities used DNA tests to determine the child's paternity.
