---- — GOOD THUNDER — A 19-year-old Good Thunder woman is facing a felony charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct for allegedly having a child with a 15-year-old boy.

The situation was reported to the Lake Crystal Police Department by staff at Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial High School, according to a criminal complaint filed in Blue Earth County District Court Monday. The December report said a male student at the school was having a sexual relationship with Taylor Marie Nelson.

Both the boy and Nelson, who had a child together this spring, admitted to having a sexual relationship that started in June, the complaint said. State law does not allow adults to have consensual sex with children under the age of 16. Nelson is scheduled to make her first court appearance July 18.
