Trisha Lynn Bliss of Jamestown pleaded not guilty in Stutsman County District Court on Thursday to two counts of gross sexual imposition, a Class AA felony.

She also was charged Friday in Stutsman County with an additional charge of corruption of a minor, a Class C felony.

Jamestown police were investigating the allegations that Bliss allowed 19-year-old man to use her daughter’s bedroom to have sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Bliss told investigators she met the man through Skout, a meet-up application for smartphones. Court documents say Bliss later admitted to meeting and having sex with boys who were under 18, though she initially thought they were older than 18.
