Southern Ind. Woman Charged With Having Sex With 2 Boys
CLARK COUNTY, Ind. -- A southern Indiana woman is behind bars, accused of having repeated sexual relations with two boys beginning when they were 11 years old and ending before they were 13.
Sheila Granger, 33, appeared in court Monday for the first time to face multiple charges.
According to a probable cause affidavit, in both cases, the sexual relationships with the boys largely took place at her home and, in at least one instance, at her New Albany hair salon. A not guilty plea was entered on Granger's behalf.
The case came to light after one of the boys told his mother after more than a year of keeping quiet. The boys were friends of Granger's daughter.
Court records indicate Granger bought clothing, football gear and games for one of the boys.
Those records also said Granger told the boy she loved him more than her own husband and said she'd go to jail if he told anyone about their relationship.
The Grangers attend Safe Harbor Christian Church in Memphis, Ind. Ray Ramsey of the church said the couple worked with youth there, but said there's no indication abuse occurred at the church.
Ramsey said the Grangers won't be allowed to work with youth pending the outcome of the case.
Prosecutor Steve Stewart said Granger had ample access to young boys because her husband is a football coach and because of the youth activities at church.
Stewart said it's possible there are more victims, but so far only the two boys have come forward.
Granger is charged with five counts of Class A child molesting of a child under 14, three Class C child molesting counts and child solicitation, a Class D felony.
If convicted of the most serious charge against her, Granger faces 20 to 50 years in prison.
Granger's husband declined comment about the case. Granger's attorney was also unavailable for comment.
Both boys are expected to testify at the trial.
