Authorities charge woman with incest
A 32-year-old woman faces charges of incest and other allegations in Napa County Superior Court after she was arrested on suspicion of having sex with her 16-year-old biological son from Napa, according to court documents.
Mistie Atkinson, of Nice, Lake County, was arrested on a warrant in early March in Ukiah, where police allegedly found her in a hotel room with the boy, according to court documents.
She was charged on March 2 in Napa with incest, oral copulation of someone under the age of 18, contact with a minor for a sexual offense, and “sending harmful matter” to her biological son, according to the complaint.
Atkinson pleaded not guilty to all the charges on March 9. Her next hearing is May 10.
Napa police said in a court filing that videos captured from the boy’s phone show Atkinson allegedly performing oral sex and engaging in sexual intercourse with the teenager. The videos were dated Feb. 3 and Feb. 4, police said.
“Atkinson and the victim are aware they are biological mother and son,” police state in the complaint.
Atkinson is also suspected of sending nude pictures of herself to the boy electronically, authorities said. The images were all allegedly sent after Dec. 22, police said in court records. Atkinson allegedly exchanged sexually explicit messages with the teenager and they talked about running away together, court documents stated.
Atkinson, after her arrest in Ukiah, was transported from the Mendocino County jail to the Napa County jail, where she is being held on a $200,000 bail.
The father of the boy, who has full custody, has obtained a restraining order against Atkinson, court records show.
