Google surrendered the email records of a Joliet woman charged with setting up and indulging in a sex date with a teenage boy, a prosecutor said during a Thursday morning hearing at the Will County Courthouse.

Attorneys will now get a chance to review the records of Margarita Hernandez's Gmail account before returning to court in October.

Hernandez, 33, was arrested last year after allegedly orchestrating the sexual liaison with the teen. The youth is a friend of the son of one of Hernandez's cousins, officials said.

Hernandez's 77-year-old live-in boyfriend, veteran weekly newspaperman John Gabriel, was home at the time of the alleged sex date, police said.

Gabriel has stood by Hernandez since her arrest. He claimed she is nothing more than a patsy in a frame-up concocted by the numerous enemies he has made over the years in the cutthroat world of community news.
