Yolanda Silva
An 18-year-old Phoenix woman was arrested yesterday for molesting a 10-year-old girl who is the daughter of her one-time foster parents. The suspect, Yolanda Silva, was 16 at the time.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, Silva was in the custody of Child Protective Services in 2009 and placed with the family of the victim.

On August 20, 2009, the victim told her parents she was abused by Silva. Silva, however, had since run away from the home and police were unable to track her down -- until yesterday, anyway.

The 10-year-old victim told police Silva basically begged to perform oral sex on her. The girl repeatedly said no, but gave in when Silva said she would run away from home if she didn't let her do it. Silva also threatened to harm herself by holding a knife up to her own neck and hitting herself, the victim told police.

Following her arrest, Silva admitted to abusing the girl and that she knew it was wrong. She told police she felt bad about abusing the girl and even attempted suicide because of it.

Silva was booked on two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, one count of child molestation, and one count of sexual abuse.

It's unclear whether Silva's being charged as an adult, as the alleged crimes were committed when she was only 16. However, Maricopa County Attorney's Office spokesman Jerry Cobb tells New Times that it's not uncommon for minors to be charged as adults if they're close to the age of 17 when the crime is committed. He says it often depends on the severity of the crime.

This is my sister, abd like olivia said we both know what really happened not what lies behind the pencil of a reporter. My heart goes out to you yolie for being strong enough to deal with the lies and hurtful words of people who don't know you or your case. I love you girl.

first off I know yolanda silva personally, shes my little sister. To everyone who has read this please understand there is two sides to every story. Even three sides,please hear me out. Yolie is a vert sweet,caring, & good warm heart person she has alot of friends and if you knew her personally you know the real story. I have been in cps foster care my self along w/yolie, I sometimes blame myself for how emotionally damaged yolie is because after we had gotten taken away 4rm our parents we were placed together & I ran away & left her.... but other than her family ties yolie is a very happy smart young lady. When she moved in w/the "victim's" family they loved her to death, I had lunch w/the family one time and they told me they all feel in love w/her how sweet and kind she is and how they evn wanted to adopt her. Yolie was happy there but than I started geting calls from yolie saying how the "victim" had a crush on her and how she would tell yolie "i want you, and blah blah blah" yolie did tell me she didnt want to mess around w/her because she didnt want to mess things up but that the little "victim" always begged her! Yes I agree it was wrong what yolie did,she gave into that girl, but heres the thing yolie had alot of crushes shes a very beautiful young lady, the "victim" was jealous of all yolies crushes & got mad at her & thats when she told her parents yolie did this did that.... But the story up there did lie,yolie did still stay w/the fam for about a week later until they did decide they didn't want to keep her. Yolie did Not run away, she went to live w/her old foster mom who knows the story as well as I do & who will be by her side in court. Yolie even has messages on Myspace from the vicitm saying shes sorry 4 lying to her parents & blah blah blah.... if you knew yolie you would just love her personality everyone does!

I'll cut this beautiful girl some slack. She felt bad about what she did, and admitted guilt. If Candy-Ass was still the C.A. He would throw this chick in the slammer with a 10 or so sentenced.

My heart goes out to Sylvia, I know she came from a home where she was sexually abused since she was very young. Where were the ten year olds parents???? Was it really necessary to call the police? Arizona courts are going to destroy what little chance she had at ever had at any kind of a life. As sad as it sounds Sylvia would have been better off had cps never come into her life and just left her for her dad to rape her until she eventually ran away

I find it odd that children whose brains are not fully developed esp. in the area of making rational and logical decisions get tried as adults and then stuck in an adult prison system where in all likekyhood they will not be rehabilitated and just be schooled in becoming sociopaths. Though I find child molestation abhorrent, there is a difference between a 16 y/o abuser and an adult abuser, the former has a chance at rehabilitation, esp a female since it is predominantly adult males that become serial abusers that are beyond rehabilitation. But tossing them in adult prisons just creates a future adult criminal, as the prison system will break down any societal values they do have, rape and degrade them until they lose all sense of how to reintegrate back into our society. Our prison systems ferment future criminals, the amount of recidivism is evidence of this

Nobody is suggesting that Silva should be thrown in jail for years republiKKKlan but justice must be served regardless of the gender of the sexual offender  Little is known about the characteristics of female sexual offending and research on female juvenile sex offenders is limited by small clinical samples. Whilst Silva may feel bad about what she did to the child and has admitted guilt she still needs to be clinically assessed and offered the appropriate prevention treatment.  If Jacki445's comment is to be believed female juvenile sex offenders who had a history of child maltreatment (i.e. sexual abuse) were more likely to have current mental health problems and experience clinical levels of anger, irritability, depression, and anxiety than those without a history of child maltreatment.

Don't worry Paulyd even the professionals have difficulty processing (understanding) female child molesters which is why greater public & professional awareness of female child molesters is needed.

Was it really necessary to call the police? Who in their right mind wouldn't? She molested a 10 year-old child for God's sake. The fact that Silva may have been sexually abused when she was young doesn't give her a right to sexually abuse a child nor does it excuse her for the crime. What about the young girl SILVA sexually abused Jacki445? Doesn't her 10-year-old victim and HER parents deserve justice too or are you more interested in defending child molesters?

FemaleMolester, the harsh punishments for such crimes like these, committed by women are the suggestion of the Republican controlled system and the private prison sector. Most women who commit these crimes are justly sentenced. But my point regarding this case, is that the girl was 16 year old at the time of the crime. And should not be sent off to prison. Instead what she needs is probation and councelling, concerning her punishment. Because clearly she was deeply troubled and in dire need of help.

Blah blah blah......

I digress from further discussion, it tends to get boring.

Would you have the same stance if the suspect was a 16 year old male...or if the 10 year old victim was your daughter...
