A 30-year-old Warsaw woman was arrested on child seduction and possession of child pornography charges, related to her housing of a 17-year-old boy from Denmark who was enrolled in a foreign exchange program. 

The Warsaw Police Department learned of the relationship Wednesday when the boy was about to leave Indiana and the country.

Warsaw police found the boy at a home where Stephanie Emrie was also present. Forensic downloads and statements received through interviews resulted in the arrest of Emrie on Wednesday.

Emrie was considered a custodian per state statute, residing with the young man and was responsible for his welfare during the time he was enrolled in the foreign exchange program, police said.

Officers say Emrie and the teen were engaged in a sexual relationship. 

Emrie was detained at the Kosciusko County Jail and released on bond.

The amount of bond was not released.
