Victim's Relationship with Grace Madison Perryman

According to the arrest affidavit, the victim admitted to his mother that he had sex several times with Perryman, and was worried that the 21-year-old might be pregnant with his child. The mother then reached out to police.

The affidavit stated that the relationship began when Perryman was 16 and the victim was 11. Perryman was living with the victim and his family, but at some point moved out of state. Last year, Perryman returned to Lufkin, staying at the victim’s house. They resumed their relationship, becoming sexually involved. The victim’s parents both knew that Perryman and their son had been having a sexual relationship.
