Things just when from really (really) bad to even worse for the wife of Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock, who is currently in jail after being charged with molesting a boy when he was as young as 14-years-old.
In addition to the original two counts of child molestation and two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, the Pinal County Attorney's Office confirms to New Times that Susan Brock now faces a total of 15 sex-with-a-14-year-old-boy-related charges.
The alleged three-year sexual relationship with the boy happened in Maricopa County. But because Brock's husband oversees many aspects of the Maricopa County Attorney's Office -- including its budget -- the case has been handed over to Pinal County.
Those charges include providing obscene materials to minors and public sexual indecency.
To get all the bizarre details of Brock's alleged affair with the boy click here. But we'll provide a brief summary below.
Brock was arrested last week 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, which is probably the reason for the latest charges.
As we said, the case is being handled by the Pinal County Attorney's Office, but Brock is held without bail at a Maricopa County jail. Her next court appearance is tomorrow morning at the Maricopa County courthouse in Mesa.
