Rachel Brock Could Plead Guilty to Sex Crimes Today; in Court Right Now

The younger Brock's been charged with seven counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of furnishing obscene materials to a minor for the alleged abuse of a boy who was 13 at the time. Rachel was 18.
Susan Brock was initially charged with 15 sex-with-a-kid related crimes, but pleaded guilty in January to three counts of attempted sexual conduct with a minor. She was later sentenced to 13 years in prison.
