Mary Fletcher, a 42-year-old dental assistant, has been charged with rape after she allegedly had sex with three teenagers.
According to the allegations, Fletcher, who goes by Debbie, slept with three California high school football players after meeting them while working with the team photographer.
Fletcher was arrested after police received several complaints that she had sexual contact with students on the Mount Shasta High School football team. Authorities say the 42-year-old mother slept with the students over the course of several weeks. She was also accused of dissuading a witness.
Fletcher was arrested on Tuesday, February 28 in McCloud on four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and one count of dissuading a witness and was held at the Siskiyou County Jail until she was released on $10,500 bail.
District Attorney Kirk Andrus spoke to NBC, saying that the case is sensitive due to the age differences between the parties:
“I have spoken with some of the victims… and you know, these cases are always challenging. I mean especially for a young person that are by definition not prepared for this kind of relationship. Relationship is probably the wrong word but they’re not prepared for this kind of interaction with an adult,” he said.
