Date set for hearing on molestation charges

January 15, 2008


A former Baldwin City woman accused of molesting her 3-year-old son was back in Douglas County District Court on Monday, and a judge set a preliminary hearing in her case.

Evidence against the 28-year-old woman will be heard Jan. 25.

The woman faces charges of aggravated criminal sodomy, aggravated indecent liberties with a child and sexual exploitation of a child. She's also charged with endangering the life of a second victim, a 14-year-old girl.

She's being held in the Douglas County Jail. Her bond remains set at $250,000.

If convicted, the woman faces 25 years to life in prison because the judge would be allowed to use Jessica's Law during sentencing. That measure increases the penalties for those convicted of sex crimes involving young children.

In a separate but related case, a 55-year-old woman also appeared in court Monday. She is charged with aggravated intimidation of a victim in connection with the case. A judge scheduled her preliminary hearing for Feb. 19.

Her OWN son???? OMG! I heard this on the news last night and i was dumb-struck for about 5 minutes. Any time or anyone who molests a child is a sick-a$$ pervert, but a mother to molest her own son??? I hope she never sees that kid again and that she gets the max if convicted. Geezzz that takes the cake on the stories today!

hmmm wonder who the 55 yr old woman is? Could it be the boyfriends mother? Either way the kids in this case have suffered enough. Why put them through more stuff than what needs to be? So many unanswered questions that i am sure will come out eventually. To tell you the truth my head still spins considering i am family to the 3 yr old and hope for the best for the kids
