30 day sentence for sexual assault

Sue Ann Close, 53-year-old woman from Beaverton, Oregon, was arrested in October 2008 and arraigned in Clatsop County Courthouse Thursday on rape charges. Close was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old boy, and the charges included two counts each of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, third-degree rape, third-degree sodomy and unlawfully delivering prescription medications to a minor.

According to prosecutor Mrs Close had sex with a 15-year-old boy while visiting Seaside during Spring Break 2008.

Buzzard said Close gave the boy's girlfriend sleeping pills so she wouldn't be aware of what she intended to do, then she had sex with the boy. Close was also charged with other sex crimes concerning the same boy in Washington County. Authorities there agreed to drop charges when prosecutors in Clatsop County reached their agreement with the defense.

While in Seaside Close gave the boy's girlfriend sleeping pills so the girl would sleep while Close used the victim for her own needs. Before leaving Seaside, Close suggested the three cut their hands and make a "blood pact" not to tell anyone what had happened - although all the while, the boy's girlfriend was unaware of what the pact was about.

Sue Ann Close pleaded guilty to misdemeanor third-degree sex abuse in a Clatsop County Courtroom, Judge Philip Nelson sentenced her to 30 days in jail and two years of probation. She will be required to register as a sex offender.
