California mom jailed for throwing secret parties with booze ans sex for her teen son and his friends
A California mother is accused of running wild drunken secret parties for her then 15-year-old son and his teen friends while watching how kids even engaged in sex.
47-year-old Shannon O’Connor kept the parties in secret from other parents and even from her husband. She reportedly “watched and laughed’ while 14 and 15-year-old teens got wasted until they were not able to stand, according to the prosecutors.
“It took a lot of brave children to come forward and to untangle this deeply disturbing case,” DA Jeff Rosen said in a statement.
“As a parent, I’m shocked. As the DA, I’m determined to hold those adults who endanger children fully accountable to the law and our community.”
Several such parties were thrown by O’Connor in the period from 2020 to 2021. She reportedly pressured her young partygoers to keep the wild jams in secret. According to the earlier reports, O’Connor rented a cottage in October of 2020 in Santa Clara for the kids. The total cost of the merriment rang up $9,000 in damage to the house. The party was caught on surveillance video. The videos show the teens puking and stumbling around the property.
“She stated if anyone was told she could go to jail,” the statement of facts said. One 14-year-old girl who spoke about the parties was threatened with retaliation that would include people spreading rumors about her, according to the allegations against her.
The woman was jailed in Idaho. Prosecutors plan to extradite her to the Golden State to face a laundry list of 39 criminal counts, including charges of child abuse and sexual assault.
