An Erie woman accused of sexually assaulting and raping a boy is a no show in court today.

The judge served a bench warrant for Nakia Barnett.

Barnett was supposed to enter a guilty plea on two counts of raping a child and corruption of minors.

It's unclear why the 39-year-old did not appear in court but her attorney's say she was aware of the court date.
