A Woman betrayed her best friend by having sex with her young son while he was in her care.

Amanda Wilson, from Belchertown, Massachusetts, was arrested for allegedly having sex with her best friend’s 13-year-old son.

Prosecutors say that Wilson, age 27, had sex with the boy at her home on several occasions, while he was left in her care, when his mother was at work or visiting relatives.

Some of the alleged sexual encounters took place when the boy's family was out of the country and he was staying with Wilson.

Wilson was arrested on four counts of aggravated sexual violation of a child. She has pleaded not guilty to having sex with a minor.

Wilson's lawyer says she is not a flight risk and has no criminal record. Wilson was released without bond.

The judge ordered her to stay away from the 13-year-old boy, and she may not have any unsupervised contact with any child under the age of 16.
