A 38-year-old Dearborn Heights woman is facing Child Sexually Abusive Activity charges in Macomb County after, police say, she tried to arrange to have sex with what she thought was a father and his underage daughter.

Kristina Lynn Howarth was arrested March 28th, when she showed up for a prearranged meeting.

Police say a week earlier she had used a popular instant-messaging program to chat with a Macomb Area Computer Enforcement detective.

Over the course of  several days, police say, Howarth expressed a willingness to have sex with both the detective, who was posing as the father of the underage daughter, and his purported underage daughter.

Howarth has been charged with two counts of Child Sexually Abusive Activity and one count of using the internet to communicate with another to commit a crime. All three charges are 20 year felonies.

Howarth was arraigned on March 29 and given a$75,000 bond. She is due back in court on April 11.
