ST. GEORGE — An arrest warrant has been issued for a St. George woman charged with engaging in sexual relations with a teenage boy.

Rebekka Kaitlin Knowlton, 29, was charged Thursday with three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a 16- or 17-year-old.

In December, St. George police interviewed a 17-year-old boy who said he had sex with Knowlton three times. "The juvenile male disclosed that the incidents occurred at three different hotels in the St. George area, around the beginning of August 2023. The juvenile male was 16 years old at the time of the incidents," according to charging documents.

Knowlton's husband also provided police with text messages from July 2023.

"The texts messages discussed Rebekka and the juvenile male planning on having sexual relations together," the charges allege. "Rebekka also discussed consuming alcohol with the juvenile male in the text messages."

Police say Knowlton was last known to be in Vicksburg, Mississippi, but her "current whereabouts are unknown at this time."
