Susan Brock Molestation Case: Plea Talks Under Way
The prosecutor in the case against Susan Brock, the estranged wife of Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock accused of molesting a teen-age boy, says a plea deal is in the works.
The Pinal County prosecutor in charge of the case told a judge on Wednesday that he and Brock's attorneys were working on a deal in advance of the February 7, plea deadline.
It's unclear what any deal made with Brock would entail, but a settlement conference to further discuss one will be scheduled for late January, the Arizona Republic reports. If no deal is reached by February 7, the case will go to trial.

Brock was arrested in October after the parents of the alleged victim found sexually charged text messages from Brock on a cell phone she bought for the boy. She used the name "Timmy Turner" when text-messaging the boy.
The boy claims he and Brock carried out a three-year sexual relationship, in which the two had sexual encounters in Brock's car, the house she shares with her husband and children, and even at her mother's house.
The boy has a girlfriend whose parents don't approve of their relationship. So Brock allegedly let the boy and his girlfriend have sex at her house. She even bought the two condoms, court documents claim.
To make the case even more bizarre, a friend of Brock's, Christian Weems, was arrested last month for allegedly trying to destroy evidence in the case.
And, to make the case even stranger, Brock's daughter Rachel was arrested the next day for allegedly having a sexual relationship with the same boy Brock's accused of molesting.
Stay tuned -- we'll let you know what, if any, deal is reached.
