Kisha Lively

Bedford Police arrested 36-year-old Kisha Lively on the warrant on Friday, December 20th.

According to a probable cause affidavit, on September 13, 2019,  Bedford Police received a request from the Department of Child Services to help with an investigation.

Officials received a complaint that Lively drank too much, started fights with her husband’s children and was having a sexual relationship with one of them.

Police spoke to Lively outside of her apartment in the 1800 block of O Street. Lively told police she had been drinking in excess. While speaking to Lively the child accused of having a relationship with Lively came outside. Both denied any sexual relationship at the time.

On October 3, 2019, police responded to the Lively apartment reporting a domestic dispute and received information about the sexual relationship between Lively and the child.

During an interview at Susie’s Place, a child advocates service, the child told officials that he and Lively had sexual intercourse multiple times since January 18, 2019 at their apartment on O Street. He told officials the only reason he has sex with Lively is because she threatened to send him to foster care if he didn’t.

Police interviewed Lively again on October 11, 2019. She again denied any sexual relationship. 

She agreed to take a polygraph on October 28th but she did not show up for the interview with officials.
