The wife of Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock was in court this morning, where she pled not guilty to charges that she had an inappropriate, sexual relationship with a teenage boy.
Susan Brock's court appearance comes less than a week after her husband of 28 years filed for divorce -- obviously, because of the allegations.
As you may recall, Brock was arrested last month after the parents of a teenager, with whom she was allegedly having a sexual relationship for at least three years, 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 him.
The boy claims he and Brock carried out a three-year sexual relationship -- from the time he was 14 until he was 17 -- 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 also 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.

In total, Brock's been charged with 15 sex-with-a-child-related crimes.
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 scheduled for December 27.
