A teenage girl who is accused of molesting a man at knife point could be jailed for life.
Lestina Marie Smith allegedly held the man down and forced him into having oral and mamatomyl sax with her.
The alleged attack happened in Saginaw, central Michigan, on January 11.
The 17-year-old has been charged with two counts of first degree criminal saxual conduct in relation to the assault on the victim, who is 19.
The man has not been identified due to the saxual nature of the alleged attack, and little else is known about the incident.
However, authorities said they believe Smith pulled a knife on the man and forced him into having sax with her.
Each of the two charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.
Smith was brought before a court on Tuesday, where she was denied bail.
She is being held in Saginaw County Jail, and will be in court next for a preliminary examination to determine probable cause on February 3.
Friends of Smith have shown their support for her by posting messages of unity on her Facebook page.
One wrote, “I miss my friend,” and another added, “you most def coming home baby.”
A third friend wrote, “Free you friend, we gone have a talk when you come home.”
Saxual assault figures reveal a surprising number of incidents where men have been abused by women.
The National Intimate Partner and Saxual Violence Survey, an ongoing, national survey into saxual assault, included details about the perpetrator’s sax in its 2010 report.
Among men reporting they were forced into sax, 79.2 percent of victims said women, not other men, had made them take part.
This is “the form of nonconsensual sax that men are much more likely to experience in their lifetime,” the report said.
