A woman faces charges of having a sexual relationship with an 8-year-old boy whom investigators said she considers her boyfriend.

Tammy Imre, 29, was arrested Friday and charged with sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor. A judge set bond at $250,000 Monday.

Police began investigating in September after the boy’s mother discovered a letter Imre had written him, in which she tells the boy she doesn’t “want anyone but you.”

She continued: “Now tomorrow it’s supposed to rain, you can come over we can (you know what).”

Police said the boy, the playmate of Imre’s 7-year-old daughter, initially denied doing anything with Imre because he feared getting into trouble. He later admitted having sexual relations with her.

Police said Imre told investigators she plans to marry the boy someday.

If convicted, Imre could serve more than 20 years in prison. A trial date has not been set.
