NILES — WSBT sat down with Willa Collins on Friday. She is the foster mother of Martise Washington, one of the five Niles teens arrested after a 17-year-old victim told police she was forced to perform multiple sex acts in order to stop a sex video from appearing on Facebook.
Martise has been living with Collins for two years. She said she and Martise had their moments of disagreement, but she never expected these allegations.
On Thursday morning at 8, Collins received this voicemail from Niles High School.
“This is just a courtesy call to let you know that Martise was arrested this morning at the high school...probably about 10 minutes ago," said a school receptionist.
A half hour later at 8:30, Collins received another next message.
"Hi Ms. Collins, this is Martise. They got me at the police station for that stuff that happened a while ago, so talk to you later," Washington said on the voicemail.
