Quincy woman who posed as boy for sex gets seven years


A woman from Quincy, Mass., who posed as a teenage boy to prey on a West Virginia girl will spend more than seven years in prison. On Tuesday, US District Judge Irene Keeley ordered Carissa Hads, 25, to serve 87 months. Hads pleaded guilty last fall to traveling across state lines with the intention of having sex with a minor. Investigators said Hads pretended to be an 18-year-old male on a social networking site and started a relationship with the Lewis County victim in 2010. The two communicated for more than a year before their first in-person meeting. A State Police investigator said Hads wore colored contact lenses and a back brace to cover her chest.
