Dalton woman charged with rape

Posted: Updated:

DALTON (WRCB) - A young dalton woman is charged with rape, and police say the accuser is a 13-year-old boy.

Police arrested 19-year-old Eileen Garguilo Tuesday.

They say the boy was seen frequently at her home, and his parents noticed something was wrong.

Police say the accuser's mother looked through her son's cell phone, and found more than 200 text messages between him and Garguilo.

One of them mentioned having sex that's when the boy confessed.

Police say it's not often women are charged with such a crime, but say they have strong evidence in this case.

The accuser's mom told police Garguilo lied to her several times before confessing.

Garguilo is still at the Whitfield County jail charged with sexual assault and rape.

No court date has been set.
