A 24-year-old Massachusetts woman who allegedly masqueraded as a teenage boy is facing federal charges for engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a 15-year-old girl who was unaware that the boyfriend she met online was actually a female, The Smoking Gun has learned. [...]

According to an affidavit sworn by an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force investigator, [Carissa] Hads—posing as a 17-year-old boy named “James Puryear Wilson”—met the teenage girl on an unnamed “social networking site” around October 2010.

“Wilson” maintained Facebook and MySpace pages that described him as a “youth pastor” living in Quincy, Massachusetts (where Hads actually resides).

Agents also allegedly found that Hads possessed a “fake, flesh-colored penis” used during a sexual encounter with the teenage victim, TSG reports.
