A Missouri woman was arrested earlier this month for allegedly supplying a 13-year-old girl with methamphetamine and sexually assaulting her.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Samantha Jessa, 22, was charged with statutory sodomy on October 12. Authorities claimed Jessa gave the girl drugs and sodomized her between January 1 and August 31.
Jessa was reportedly acquainted with the 13-year-old victim, and authorities said the meth and sex were not part of any transaction.
Jessa’s bail was set at $100,000. The Post-Dispatch reported that she also has a pending drug paraphernalia charge in Berkeley.
