DALLAS (AP) - Prosecutors say a Wisconsin woman has been accused of meeting a 14-year-old Texas boy through online gaming and having sex with him.

Jennifer Lynn Dougherty, of Janesville, Wisconsin, remains in custody pending a detention hearing Wednesday in Dallas.

Dougherty faces Texas charges of harboring a runaway. A federal complaint says she transported the minor to Wisconsin to engage in sexual activity.

His parents reported him missing Sept. 12. Prosecutors say that’s when Dougherty flew to Dallas, she and the boy had sex at a hotel then both flew to Wisconsin where they continued sexual relations.

The pair returned to Texas on Sept. 16. Dougherty was arrested at Dallas Love Field and police recovered the boy.

Online records don’t list an attorney to speak for Dougherty, whose age wasn’t immediately released.
