SALEM, OR - The Marion County Sheriff’s Office have charged 35-year-old Sarah Beth Hopkins with multiple counts of sex abuse and rape after they say she was having a sexual relationship with an 11-year-old boy.
She got busted after the boy’s mother became suspicious of her one-time neighbor’s close relationship with her son and confronted him about it. The boy ‘fessed up and told his mom that he’d been cleaning Hopkins’ mud flaps for the last eight months.
The boy’s mother confronted Hopkins with what her son had told her and Hopkins admitted that it was true. She said she’d been having sex with the boy since February; playing find-the-wet-spot with him in her apartment and in public places when they went on walks together.
When police interviewed Hopkins, she told them she never forced the boy for sex or gave him anything in return. Hopkins was arrested and charged with 20 counts of rape and sodomy. Her bail has been set at $1 million and she’ll be back in Aug. 20.
As KPTV pointed out, Hopkins’ Facebook page includes suggestive photos of herself, along with links to a few different teen websites. o_O Because of this, police feel there could be more victims. Anyone with information about Hopkins is asked to call the Marion County Sheriff’s Office at 503.588.5094.
