MVPD arrests Texico woman on sex abuse charges

JEFFERSON COUNTY — A 25-year-old Texico woman is in the Jefferson County Jail, charged with two counts aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Mt. Vernon police arrested Jazmine Huggins last week, after a warrant had been issued for her arrest. Huggins was indicted Friday on two counts Class 2 felony criminal sexual abuse.

Prosecutors allege Huggins committed the sexual acts in April on a girl who was between the ages of 13 and 17-year-old.

Bail for Huggins has been set at $75,000, with special conditions of release to have not contact with the alleged victim, or unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18.

She is scheduled for an August 10 preliminary hearing in the case, with her court appointed attorney.
