Amy Thompson, 32, of Yukon, was arrested on a complaint of engaging in lewd acts against a minor and rape in the first degree, officials said.
A mother contacted authorities to report that her son had been sexually molested by Thompson while he was receiving treatment at the Fort Reno Adolescent Drug and Rehabilitation Center.
