Anna Areola-Hernandez, a 24-year-old Glendale, Arizona resident has been branded, and rightfully so, a child molester.
Anna, taking advantage of still looking semi-young at her age, decided it would be a good idea to go online and pose as a 15-year-old girl in order to seduce younger, under-aged boys; something she prefers over guys her own age…by her own admission.
She, calling herself 'Tiny Hernandez' and 'Ana Hernandez' in her profiles, would find these boys on Facebook and messaging apps such as Kik, Snapchat and Tango.
She was found out when one of the multiple boys’ mothers contacted police saying Anna had seduced her son. She was then arrested on charges of sexual conduct with a minor, child molestation, unlawful age misrepresentation, and an adult posing as a minor for sexual conduct. She initially denied all of the above, before finally admitting it.

Her defense attorney, Eleanor Knowles, had tried claiming Anna’s IQ was extremely low and that she had a history of trauma and untreated mental illness. She further argued for her client that sending her to prison would delay treatment for her condition.

During Anna’s sentencing hearing Wednesday, one of the victims’ mothers didn’t hold back – as you might imagine.

She accused Anna of plying boys with drugs and alcohol and having ‘become a professional stalker’ by the time she had contacted her son. Prosecutors allege the 13-year-old boy had contracted chlamydia from Ms. Hernandez as well.
As Anna burst into tears, the mother shouted, “She should not be let out, ever! She bullied these kids! She would not let go!”
When the mother’s temper started to get out of control and became profanity-laced, she was taken from the courtroom.
“You're a child molester, Anna,” she screamed as she was led away. “Fuck you too!”
Anna Areola-Hernandez was sentenced to 10 years in prison and lifetime probation after pleading guilty to three counts of child molestation.

In addition to her prison term, she will be required to register as a sex offender.

Ms. Knowles read a letter written by her client in which Anna apologized to the court and her family. She promised to seek counseling behind bars.
