ZEBULON, N.C.  – A Zebulon woman was arrested over the weekend on warrants out of Nash County for statutory rape of a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Chief Deputy Brandon Medina of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office said.

Dakita Joyce Wright, 28, was arrested by the Wake County Sheriff’s Office on July 23 on charges out of Nash County that dated back to July 9.

According to the Nash County Sheriff’s Office, the charges Wright faces are in connection with a relationship she had with a 15-year-old boy. Medina said the suspect knew victim and his family for “a long time” and that the contributing to the delinquency of a minor charge is because Wright exposed the victim to, and allowed him to use, illegal drugs while spending time with her.

Wright is being held under a $750,000 secured bond.
