Woman Suspected of Inappropriate Contact with Foster Child Facing New Charges

By  | 

A woman suspected of having inappropriate sexual contact with a foster child in her care turned herself in as she faces additional charges.

Kim Carrera, 47, turned herself in Tuesday morning after a warrant was issued for her arrest. Bellevue Police say Carrera removed information from her cell phone directly related to her previous charges of 2nd-Degree Sexual Assault of a Protected Person.

Carrera was originally arrested back in August after police said she was found in a vehicle parked behind a Bellevue business with a 17-year-old male who was placed in her care. Officers suspected that inappropriate sexual contact had taken place.

Carrera was a foster parent with Nebraska Families Collaborative, which is a contract agency with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

Carrera has been released from the Sarpy County Jail after posting a 10% of $10,000 bond.
