LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Limestone County Sheriff's Office arrested a woman for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old.

Investigators arrested Susan Whitfield late Wednesday night. She is charged with five counts of second-degree rape and one count of bribing a witness. She has since posted an $80,000 bond.

Sheriff Mike Blakely said the 14-year-old boy told his father that he had sex with Whitfield multiple times. The sheriff would not go into detail on the bribery charge.

He said after they gathered evidence such as texts, phone records and witness statements, the Sheriff's Office handed the case over to the district attorney.

A grand jury indicted Whitfield on Wednesday. It was confirmed by the Marshall Space Flight Center that Whitfield is a current NASA employee.
