(OWENSBURG) - A 33-year-old Owensburg woman was arrested on allegations that she had sexual relationships with an underage male.

Crystal Casewell is charged with felony sexual misconduct.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Casewell had a sexual relation with the underage male from early November 2014 until February 2015, when the crime was reported.

Police say Casewell called the teen more than 250 between November 6-22. In December she purchased a iPhone 5S for the teen and paid the bill. Police took the phone and found numerous calls and text messages between the two.

She also gave the teen an AlienWare Alpha gaming system and her credit card information to purchase online games.

What police say was a friendly relationship progressed to something more.

Detectives found that Caswell paid for motel rooms in Bedford and Bloomington on 16 different occasions. She also rented a storage unit in Bedford that was furnished with an inflatable mattress, air pump and bed covers. Police were provided with surveillance video showing Caswell entering and exiting the facility with the male.

The victim told police that he would sneak out of his parent's home while they slept to meet Caswell.

Greene County detectives attempted to speak to Caswell, but they were directed to speak to her attorney.

The Greene County Prosecutor's Office filed criminal charges against Caswell in Greene Superior Court on Thursday and a bench warrant was issued. She was arrested later that night.

Caswell's bond was set at $15,000 surety with ten percent allowed. She was released the same day after posting $1,500 cash.

Caswell is scheduled to appear in court on today at 1 p.m. when she will be formally charged.
