NEWPORT BEACH (CBSLA) – A 44-year-old woman was released on bail Thursday after being arrested on suspicion of sexual activity with a minor.
According to the Newport Beach Police Department, Laura Fifield was arrested on Wednesday morning near John Wayne Airport in an office building on Von Karman's 4000-meter block. Fifield has been accused of having sex with a minor under 16 and a sex act with a drunk victim.
Police said she was released on a $ 50,000 bail and the case had been brought up to the Orange County Prosecutor.
When Fifield was confronted in her apartment on Thursday, she said that she should "not comment" and closed the door when asked about the alleged sexual acts, although she was heard saying, "It did not happen."
Neighbors said Fifield had three children who were in middle and high school. Her next court hearing is August 26th.
