South Carolina Babysitter Jailed For Sexually Assaulting 13-Year-Old Boy


Last March Susan Tappeiner, 42-year-old Bluffton mother was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy she had been baby-sitting. Tappeiner faces criminal sexual conduct charges after she allegedly assaulted the boy in August while baby-sitting him and his sisters.
Last week in the Beaufort County Courthouse, Tappeiner was convicted by a jury of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor after two hours of deliberation.

The boy testified that on Aug. 15, 2008, he was watching movies with Tappeiner, her husband and two daughters, his sisters and another neighborhood girl at the Tappeiners' home.

After everyone fell asleep, he said, Tappeiner grabbed him by the arm and dragged him to her daughter's bedroom. She locked the door and struck him when he tried to escape, he told jurors. He testified that Tappeiner forced him to perform oral sex on her, then have sexual intercourse. He said Tappeiner told him not to tell anyone what had happened.
