JACKSON COUNTY -- A Jackson County grand jury has indicted a Pascagoula woman on charges she had sex with a 13-year-old.
The grand jury indicted Miranda Charlena Duke on three counts of sexual battery. According to court records, the alleged crimes occurred between Aug. 1, 2013, and Oct. 1, 2013, in Pascagoula.
Pascagoula police arrested Duke, 25, in December on one count of sexual battery, but the grand jury determined there was enough evidence to indict her on two additional charges.
At the time of her arrest, Pascagoula police said they had conducted a more than two-month investigation into allegations she had been involved in sexual relationship with the child.

Duke has pleaded not guilty and remains jailed without bond in Jackson County.
Her bond on the sex crime charges was revoked after she was arrested in a series of auto burglaries in D'Iberville and Biloxi.
A stolen iPad's location feature led authorities to a Pascagoula home where they said they found several items from other burglaries. Duke and others were taken into custody.
In the D'Iberville case, she was booked on five counts of auto burglary. According to the jail docket, she was booked July 1 on the auto burglary charges.
She has also been identified as a suspect in a burglary in Jackson County.
