Sharpsburg, PA — Susan Sundo, 45, the former head of the Sharpsburg Recreation Committee, has been accused of having a six month long affair with a friend of her 15-year-old son.
Sundo’s illicit activities came to a screeching halt when her husband found out about the affair and went to the home of the teen to confront him and his parents. That’s when he learned that his wife and the teen had been meeting for sex for six months.
The boy told him he’ had sex with his wife over a dozen times, and that these encounters took place in her SUV and in her home’s attic or basement during sleepovers with Sundo’s son.
After getting all the details he needed, including a bunch of texts his wife had sent to the teen, Sundo’s husband performed an impressive cock-block against other teenage boys in the Sharpsburg area by reporting his wife to police. When police questioned the teen he admitted to the affair with Sundo, claiming Sundo would send him numerous texts encouraging him to meet her for sex.
Sundo, the mother of three boys ages 6 to 15, was arrested and charged with corruption of minors, statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and unlawful contact with a minor. She was released from jail after posting a $20,000 bond and ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. She was also let go from her position as head of the Sharpsburg recreation board.
Yesterday, District Justice Elissa Lang issued a no-contact order for Susan Sundo, barring her from contacting the teen or his family. She is due back in court in March.
Sundo’s attorney, David Shrager, said his client has never been in trouble with the law before and that that her reputation has been wrongly tarnished. “She’s a very ordinary, everyday housewife,” he said. “She’s very distraught with these circumstances. The families were all very close prior to this. Her children were very good friends. It’s upsetting.”
Investigators are also looking into whether Sundo was having inappropriate relationships with other minors she was talking to on her cellphone.
