NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A school security worker accused in an inappropriate relationship with a teenage boy conspired to kill her husband, according to court documents.
Patience Perez, 22, was arrested Tuesday in connection to an incident that occurred on Feb. 1. Amanda Howie with the Norfolk Commonwealth's Attorney's Office said Perez was charged in Norfolk with conspiracy to commit murder and solicitation to commit murder.
Those charges, according to court documents viewed by WAVY.com, stemmed from a plot to murder her husband. Karen Parker-Chesson with the Norfolk Police Department said Perez and the 15-year-old engaged in conversation and planned to kill Perez's husband.
The teen has not been charged at this time in connection to the conspiracy.
Perez, a mother of two, was also charged with two counts of indecent liberties with a child by custodian and use of electronic means for child sex crime or porn Tuesday. Parker-Chesson said Perez brought the teen to her home several times and engaged in a sexual relationship. The two also exchanged pornographic images using mobile phones.
Last Friday, WAVY.com learned Perez was facing a charge of felony custodial indecent liberties with a child in Virginia Beach after school officials say they learned of inappropriate contact with the same 15-year-old student at Renaissance Academy, where Perez was employed.
Perez's mother told 10 On Your Side her daughter is innocent. She said both Perez and her husband are upset with the Commonwealth's Attorney, claiming the charges were pulled out of thin air. She also said there is much more going on than people know, and that those details will come out in court.
Grazia Moyers with the Virginia Beach Police Department said Friday Perez and the student were engaged in a consensual, sexual relationship off school grounds.
A Norfolk judge granted Perez a $25,000 surety bond and a $25,000 personal recognizance bond. The conditions of the bond include be of uniform good behavior, have no contact with her child, husband or the teen victim.
Perez has since been removed from her position at Renaissance Academy. She is scheduled to be in court on May 15.
