Debra Ayla

Debra Ayla (Tapia), 38-year-old married mother-of-four from Santa Ana, California, has pleaded guilty to engaging in a sex with a 15-year-old neighbor which resulted in a pregnancy and birth of child.

Ayala pleaded guilty to a felony lewd act with a child 14 or 15 years old, oral copulation with someone younger than 16, and unlawful sexual intercourse, according to court records. Under the terms of the plea deal with prosecutors, three of the same counts were dismissed.

Ayala was married with three children when she had the affair with the boy, who lived nearby. Ayala had been friends with the boy’s family and started inviting the victim to her house late at night in early 2009. Ayala was accused of having sex with the boy about two times a week between February and November 2009, according to Mestman. She gave birth to the boy’s daughter Nov. 21, 2009.

The boy’s mother grew suspicions when she found suggestive handwritten notes between the two and confronted her son, who admitted the relationship. The boy first had sex with Ayala, who had watched him grow up, before he graduated from elementary school.

The boy’s family has custody of the girl, but Ayala is battling for visitation rights.

In addition to 365 days behind bars, Orange County Superior Court Judge sentenced Ayala to three years of probation and ordered her to register as a sex offender. Conviction without the plea deal could have fetched her a maximum of sentence of seven years and eight months in state prison.
