Carrie Jean Berg, 38, appeared in Cass County District Court on a warrant after prosecutors filed charges last week that allege the then-14-year-old told police last year that she molested him for years, starting when he was 9 or 10 and continuing until he was about 14 years old.

Police claims a DNA test showed the alleged victim in the case, who is now either 29 or 30 years old, is the father of a child of Berg's, court records state.

Documents also say Berg reported in 1997 that the boy sexually assaulted her.

Berg's next court appearance is set for March 6.
