A 22-year-old Florida woman has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old boy, videotaping the abuse, and also exposing him to gang activities by making him sell drugs.
Irabelis Carrazana, from Miami, was booked into jail on Tuesday on charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a child between 12 and 16, child neglect, promoting sexual performance by a child and contributing to the delinquency of a child.
The underage victim, who is now 15 years old, told police that he had been having sex with Carrazana from the time he was 14.

When questioned by police, Carrazana allegedly admitted to being in possession of videos on her phone showing herself having sex with the minor.
A further review of the phone’s contents also uncovered text message exchanges, in which Carrazana instructed the child to sell drugs on behalf of another person, according to police.
In one instance, Carrazana became angry at the boy for failing to collect money from a drug buyer, after which he told her he would no longer take part in the drug trade.
According to police, Carrazana has been linked to street gang activities, which resulted in her home being targeted in a drive-by shooting carried out by a rival group while the boy was staying there.

Records indicate that the 5-foot-tall, 90-pound Miami woman has an extensive history of arrests in Florida, including on charges of drug possession and battery.
Her most recent run-in with the law predating this week’s arrest took place on November 7, when Carrazana was picked up on felony counts of possession of Xanax, resisting arrest with violence, carrying a concealed weapon and tampering with evidence.
Carrazana made her initial court appearance on Wednesday. Her arraignment is scheduled for January 15.
