A Moore mother faces the possibility of becoming a registered sex offender.

Valerie Posey, 26, was arrested last week for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old boy, according to court documents.

Detective said in late February she and the alleged victim met at Kelley Elementary and had sexual contact with one another on the playground.

"My understanding in the investigation is this was the only incident we were able to identify," police  Sgt. Todd Strickland said.

The boy's mom said while searching through her son's cell phone she found nude picture of Posey. 

Sgt. Strickland said it was a good thing the boy's mom checked his cell phone. In April, Moore police said they had enough evidence to arrest Posey on complaints of forced sodomy and lewd act with a child.

"The mother got involved in her child's life and checked on the things," Strickland said. "This was wrong for this 26-year-old to be doing this. So thanks to the mom, she was able to identify this and bring it to our attention and we were able to file charges."

Posey was released Friday from the Cleveland County Jail.  She's due back in court later this month for a preliminary hearing on the two charges related to this case.
