A shameless mother-of-two from Massachusetts has been sent to jail after pleading guilty to r*ping two twin brothers, of which one was her daughter’s 15-year-old boyfriend.
Revealing details of the encounter, Dailymail reported that Heather Salines, 40, was sentenced to four years in prison and three years’ probation Monday after she entered guilty pleas to two counts of child r*pe, two counts of child enticement, two counts of dissemination of obscene matter to a minor and one count of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14.
During the hearing in Essex Superior Court in Salem, Distract Attorney Jonathan Blodgett called Salines’ actions towards the two victims ‘beyond despicable’ and condemned her for taking advantage of her position as a trusted adult and betraying that trust ‘in a most vile way,’ reported the Boston Herald.
It was gathered that Salines’ arrest came in March 2014 when officials at Belmonte Middle School in Saugus discovered that her daughter’s then-15-year-old boyfriend had been showing n*de pictures of the woman to classmates. When police started its investigation, the boy revealed he had previously had s*x with Salines and they had exchanged n*ked photos.
When she was questioned, she admitted she had had s*x with the boy on numerous occasions. At the time she was into the act, she was married. She and her husband have since divorced. Salines has a son and daughter.
Explaining how the illicit incident happened, Salines said she had met the boy two months before they became intimate, and he had told her about the personal turmoil he went through after ‘he lost his mother at a young age’.
‘When I looked at him, he did not act like a 15-year-old… he acted like a grown man,’ she said, telling police things ‘spiraled out of control’ and she ‘lost herself.’
They first had sex in a car in the parking lot of a Saugus-area park on March 17. Two days later, Salines said the teen booked a room at the local DoubleTree hotel, because there was always the threat that her daughter could walk in on them when they were at the house.
Salines was getting ready to accept a plea deal in June 2015 when the victim’s twin brother came forward also accusing her of r*pe.
According to court papers, Salines r*ped the second boy at her home in February 2014, about a month before the initial alleged incident. Prosecutors said Salines sent the boy explicit pictures of herself.
When she was arrested last year for r*ping the first brother, prosecutors said the teen was ‘vulnerable’ because his mother had recently died and he grew to see Salines as a ‘mother figure’.
It was gathered that Salines allegedly accosted the boy, then 14 years old, in a bathroom while he was a guest in her home. Prosecutors said she called him to her bedroom, took off her bra, and began to kiss and fondle him. She then allegedly asked several times to perform oral s*x on him. Later, she started bombarding him with text messages, including a photo in which she posed with his name scrawled on parts of her body.
A month later, officials say Salines moved on to the teen’s brother, who had just turned 15, and began sending him nude photos, including a selfie with his name written on her body.
The two had oral s*x and intercourse on two separate occasions, including once at the DoubleTree hotel, where the victim and Salines took a selfie while lying in bed together, according to a report in the Eagle Tribune. That image would eventually end up in the hands of officials at Belmonte Middle School and lead to the woman’s arrest.
In a victim impact statement that was read to the court by a prosecutor Monday, the second brother, who had been the on-again, off-again boyfriend of the woman’s daughter, said he suffered severe depression and had suicidal thoughts as a result of his illicit tryst with Salines, reported the station NECN.
For all her crimes, Salines has lost her husband and will spend four years in prison and three years’ probation.
