Courtney Bowles was caught in car having sex with a teen boy

Courtney Renee Bowles, 31-year-old teacher at Mountain View High School, Loveland, Colorado, has been arrested in connection with a sexual assault on a child after police found her and a boy in a car at a park.

Bowles also faces charges of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the Larimer County arrest report. Bowles was arrested at North Lake Park, where a Loveland police officer contacted the vehicle at 10:40 p.m. for being in the park after it was closed.

“The female was on top of the male and she quickly jumped off of the male when she saw my flashlight shining into the vehicle,” said Officer Sharon Hopkins, who filed the arrest report. “I told both subjects that I could see they were naked and they needed to get dressed and talk to me.”

According to the report, the boy initially told the officer he was 20-years-old. However, he eventually produced his Mountain View High School identification card which showed he was in the 10th grade, and confessed to being 16. Officer Hopkins also said she found bottles of vodka and Sprite in the vehicle.

Bowles has been released on a $50,000 personal recognizance bond. She can’t come within 100 feet of the boy’s home or school and can’t have contact with anyone younger than 18-years-old for the time being, a court ordered. She’s also barred from contacting the alleged victim and his family.

Bowles will be allowed to talk to her daughters but only by phone.

The Coloradoan reports that a judge ruled Bowles will be allowed to talk to her daughters for up to 30 minutes every other day. Her husband must listen in to the conversations. However, she won’t be allowed to see her children under the supervision of a third party until at least after Feb. 24.

Defense attorney Derek Samuelson implored the judge earlier Thursday to consider how Bowles’ daughters are suffering at the separation from their mother — a woman without any prior crimes who he said has been a loving mom.

He contended there was no risk and all gain for the young girls in seeing their mother, who is accused of providing alcohol to and having sex with a teenage boy.

However, prosecutor Renee Doak said there is no way to be sure without an evaluation that Bowles is not a risk to her children.
