Saugus Mother Accused of Sex with Daughter's Teen Friend


Heather Salines, 38-year-old woman from Saugus, Massachusetts, has been accused of engaging in sex with a 15-year-old boy who is a friend of Salines daughter.

Salines faces multiple charges, including aggravated child rape.

Salines told authorities she had sex with the young boy at a Double Tree Hotel in Danvers on March 19, 2014 and two days earlier in a vehicle parked in a Saugus park, according to a police report. She also told cops that “they sent pictures, naked, back and forth,” according to the report.

Authorities initiated the investigation at the Belmonte Middle School in Saugus after a student had been called to the school office for showing nude photos on his phone. the boy told police he had previously had sex with Salines and they had exchanged naked photos.

She was later questioned by authorities and admitted that they had sex on a number of occasions but the exact number of sexual encounters has not been revealed. “When I looked at him, he did not act like a 15-year-old… he acted like a grown man,’”she said.

At one point early in the illegal relationship, she invited the boy to her home when no one else was there and they were kissing and that she was touching him over his clothing . “I lost myself,” she told, according to the police report. “Things spiraled out of control.”

They first had sex in a car in the parking lot of a Saugus-area park on March 17.

The Boston Herald reports that she pointed the finger at the boy for taking the trysts to the next level, saying that he was the one to suggest they get a hotel room since there was always the threat that her daughter could walk in on them when they were performing sex acts on each other at the house.

Heather Salines now faces six counts of aggravated rape and abuse of a child, one charge of child enticement and one charge of disseminating obscene material to a minor.

The aggravated rape charges are by far the most serious, as the mandatory minimum for each count carries a 10 year prison sentence, meaning that she could face 60 years behind bars if she is found guilty.

Salines’ attorney said her side of the story hasn’t come out yet.

“She looks forward to emerging from the dark shadows that these allegations provide,” defense attorney William Korman said. “She has cooperated with authorities at every step of this procedure, and she will continue to do so.

“When you see the full story, when you see our side of the events, you will see that she is not the villain the commonwealth seeks to portray her as,” Korman said. “Her entire family is standing behind her, but this is alleged to have occurred in the community where they live, go to the grocery store and go to school, so it’s a very trying time for them.”

Cheer Perfection reality star accused of raping 13-year-old boy

Andrea Clevenger, 34-year-old woman from Sherwood, Arkansas, is facing felony charges after being arrested for the rape of a teenage boy.

Police have charged her with rape and engaging children in explicit conduct for use in a visual or print medium.

A press release from Lt. Jamie Michaels details that on Nov. 27, the Sherwood Police Department received a call from the Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline (1-800-482-5964) about allegations of sexual assault by Andrea Clevenger, 34, of a teenage boy.

Andrea Clevenger  appeared on TLC’s Cheer Perfection. Cheer Perfection is an American reality television series that debuted on December 19, 2012, on TLC. TLC announced on February 6, 2013, that it ordered an eight episode second season, which premiered on August 28, 2013. After Andrea Clevenger was arersted, TLC released a statement that the show had been canceled and no repeats will be aired.

According to the release, detectives obtained a warrant charging her with one count of rape and one count of engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in a visual or print medium.


The alleged victim, a 13-year-old boy, told police he was in the Clevenger home when Andrea asked him to take off his pants. The boy said Andrea Clevenger then climbed on him and had sex with the boy, who claims he ejaculated in the woman’s mouth, documents obtained by TMZ showed.

The relationship continued after there, with the boy claiming he had oral sex with Cheer Perfection star Andrea Clevenger two other times, and that the two shared explicit pictures. The boy’s parents discovered the pictures in November and called the Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline.

Through investigation, officers reported learning that Clevenger and the teen had been engaged in at least three separate incidents, involving various acts of sexual intercourse. Two of the events reportedly occurred in October 2013 in Clevenger's vehicle while the third incident was said to take place on November 8 at Clevenger's home.

The teen's parents told police they had found inappropriate images on the teen's phone, which had been deleted. Officers were able to use software to obtain the memory information from the phone. That data showed that there had been 32 explicit images, which the teen said were sent to him from Clevenger.

According to the affidavit, the mother told police in a written statement that she and Clevenger had a conversation following the November 8 incident. In that conversation, the mother said that Clevenger admitted to the acts occurring, then said the teen "doesn't act 13 (years old)."

Kansas mom of two guilty of sex with teen boy

Cathleen Balman, 40-year-old former language arts teacher at Clearwater Middle School, Clearwater, Kansas, has been placed on three years on probation for having sex with a former student and ordered her to have no contact with non-relatives under the age of 18.

Balman, married mother-of-two, pleaded guilty in March to engaging in a year-long indecent relationship with a 15-year-old boy. She pleaded guilty to one count of indecent liberties with a child. Her trial on three counts of indecent liberties with a child was scheduled to start next day. Two of the charges were dismissed as part of the plea bargain.

Balman was arrested and charged in November 2011 with having an sexual affair with one of her students for more than a year. Plice began their investigation in September after detectives reviewed text and photo messages that had been exchanged between Balman and the student. As the investigation progressed, according to prosecutors, it reportedly became apparent that Cathleen Balman had become engaged in a sexual relationship with the student that spanned several months.

Because she had no prior convictions, the charge was in a “border box” on the state’s sentencing grid, which means the law makes no recommendation between probation and imprisonment. District Judge Terry Pullman concluded “by the narrowest of margins” that Cathleen Balman would be less likely to re-offend if she were placed in a treatment program rather than be sent to prison for 34 months as prosecutors were recommending.

When Cathleen Balman was then given a chance to address the court she told that she was really sorry for her actions. “It’s truly the biggest regret of my life,” she said. “I’m full of remorse. I take full responsibility for what happened. If given the privilege of probation I can assure you this will never happen again."

“I’d like to apologize to the victim and his family. I am truly sorry.”

After granting her probation, Pullman said told Balman that if she does re-offend, he will revoke her probation and order her to serve a 34-month prison sentence that will run consecutively to any new sentence she may receive. Meaning if this mother who likes to have sex with teens continues sexually abusing kids, she ends up behind bars.

Balman, who taught language arts to eighth-graders for three years prior to her arrest, had joined the school district in 2008 after teaching second-graders for one year at Argonia Elementary School.

Connecticut Mom Sentenced for Sex with Underage Toyboy

Brittany Larson, 29-year-old former teacher at Devereux Glenholme School, New Milford, Connecticut, was sentenced earlier this month on an agreed upon charge of third-degree sexual assault to a 10-year prison sentence, suspended after nine months, to be followed by 10 years of probation.

Larson was accused of engaging in sexual relationship between May 2011 to December 2011 with a 16-year-old student. The school serves students with Asperger's syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and other learning disorders. Female teacher was married and pregnant in her third trimester at the time of her arrest in October 2011. Police had been conducting an investigation since being contacted a moth earlier by administrators at the school. Mrs Larson was charged with second-degree sexual assault and held by police on a $25,000 bond. According to an arrest affidavit, staff members at the school became suspicious of an inappropriate relationship after discovering racy online interactions with on the victim’s Facebook page. Ms. Larson told authorities her relationship with the student turned intimate in June 2011, and that she set up a secret Facebook page to communicate discreetly. The victim reportedly told police that the encounters took place on campus in multiple locations.

In June 2012, she turned down a plea deal that would have meant a 10-year sentence, suspended after 15 months, instead opting for the jury trial. Anyway, later she pleaded guilty to second degree sexual assault under the Alford doctrine. The Alford doctrine means that a defendant does not agree with all of the facts of the case but believes there is enough evidence to result in a conviction, and that pleading guilty could result in a more favorable sentence. Based on the sentence handed she will be incarcerated for nine months at the most but will still be required to register as a sex offender for 10 years.

Kathleen Cawthorne Gets 4 Months for Sex with Student

Kathleen Cawthorne, 33-year-old former teacher at William Campbell High School, Rustburg, Virginia, accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student, was sentenced to a total of 11 years for one count of indecent liberties with a child and three counts of electronic solicitation of a minor but Campbell County Circuit Court Judge John T. Cook suspended the time to be served to four months.


Cawthorne will also be on supervised probation for three years and must register as a sex offender. Cawthorne’s probation officer had testified that Cawthorne was bipolar with facets of hypersexuality which is probably the reason her sentence went from 11 years to four months.

In February Cawthorne pleaded no contest to one count of taking indecent liberties with a minor and three counts of electronic solicitation of a minor.

She was arrested in April 2012 on charges are based on incidents deputies believe took place between March 7 and March 13 when Cawthorne was a teacher at William Campbell Combined School. The student asked Cawthorne for her phone number, and the two began texting each other. The texts were of a sexual nature. On March 13, 2012, the two met at a store in Campbell County and rode around together in the student’s car, and the two had sexual intercourse. Kathleen Cawthorne also sent photos of herself showing the “upper part of her body” to the student.

Another teacher was shown the photos on another student’s phone and went to the principal. When the principal confronted Cawthorne, she admitted that the photos were of her and that she had allowed the student to touch her in private areas, but denied having sexual intercourse with the student. Kathleen Cawthorne, married mother of three, was released from her position with the school in March after the allegations surfaced.

The indecent liberties statute incorporates sexual touching or exposure.

Stepmom sentenced for sex with stepson

Michelle Almonte-DeJesus, 27-year-old woman from Grand Island, Nebraska, who pleaded no contest to sexual assault charge in March has been sentenced to no jail for engaging in sex with her 15-year-old stepson.

Almonte-DeJesus will have to register as a sex offender and will spend five years on probation. She was also ordered that she not have a cell phone and have limited access to the internet.

As a result of the plea deal made with prosecutors, charges of incest, child pornography and creating obscene material against Almonte-DeJesus were dropped. According to records, the boy, who was 15 when sexual relationship with his stepmother began and turned 16 in June 2012, reported three incidents of first-degree sexual assault, eight incidents of incest, three incidents of consenting to child pornography and two incidents of creating obscene material.

While Michelle Almonte-DeJesus could have gotten 50 years in prison, Judge William Wright said in court last week he opted not to give her jail-time saying the boy might have been the one to instigate the sex acts. When the prosecuting attorney questioned whether this was a double standard, the judge told him the sentence is similar to one of his prior cases involving a man. Hall County's Deputy Attorney Jon Hendricks said this case involved a family member. "To me that was one of the most horrendous aspects of this was. She was supposed to be a mother-figure to him and taking care of him-raising him. And it's just a different dynamic. And to me it just appears she took advantage of this child."


Victims father Enrique Almonte-DeJesus Jr. says he suspected something illicit was going on with his wife and son after he thought he saw them kissing one day, so he came up with a plan to catch them red-handed. “One day prior, I went downstairs and I saw them kissing, sitting on the couch,” he said. “I had my doubts, and I acted as if I was going to work, and I returned and found them having sex in my home.” According to court documents, the woman and the 15-year-old traded nude photos of each other via cell phone and began having sex in January of last year.
