APPLETON, Wis. (AP) --- A 19-year-old Outagamie County woman is accused of having sexual contact with a 13-year-old whom she believes is the father of her unborn child.

Nineteen-year-old Lacy L. Sommers was charged Thursday with repeated sexual assault of the same child. The felony count carries a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.

The criminal complaint says the incidents occurred from November to April.

An investigator says the boy acknowledged the contact.

The complaint quotes Sommers as saying she knew the contact was wrong but she was in love with the boy.

Prosecutors say she and the teen both say she's pregnant and both think he's the father.

Online court records didn't list an attorney for Sommers on Saturday.
