A Red Lion woman is in York County Prison, accused of having sex with a teenage boy twice last year.

Mikki Yvonne Phillips, 34, of 38 E. High St., third floor, is charged with statutory sexual assault, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of a minor and indecent assault of a person less than 16.

She was arraigned Wednesday by District Judge Scott Laird, who set bail at $50,000.

Charging documents allege Phillips had sex twice with a boy in 2012 at her former homes at the Walnut Ridge apartment complex in Dallastown and at a home in the first block of North Main Street in Yoe.

The boy was 13 or 14 at the time of the alleged assaults, and Phillips was considered a friend of his family, according to Phillips' arrest affidavit, filed by York Area Regional Police Detective Donald Hopple Jr.

The boy didn't say anything to his family at the time, police said.

Roommate talked: Recently, Phillips' former roommate went to the boy's father and told him about the alleged sexual contact, the affidavit states.

On Oct. 2, the father spoke with his son, who confirmed it happened twice, possibly in October, according to the affidavit.

The boy later told investigators he was sleeping over at Phillips' former Dallastown home, and went into her room to watch television, police said. She sat down on the bed and started to kiss him, the affidavit states.

Phillips then removed the boy's clothing and had unprotected sex with him, the affidavit alleges.

The boy told police a second sexual encounter happened a couple months later, at Phillips former Yoe home, according to police.

Welfare fraud? At the time of her arrest, Phillips was free on her own recognizance on a third-degree felony charge of welfare fraud.

York County detectives filed that charge in January, according to court records.

If found guilty, Phillips could be ordered to pay up to about $3,900 in restitution, according to court records.

It is unclear if she has retained an attorney for her sexual assault charges.

For her welfare-fraud case, she is being represented by public defender Catherine Himes, who did not return a phone message seeking comment.
