Something troubled the mother of an underage Grand Junction, Colorado boy about her son. Likely the sore arm he had from all the high fives he got from his friends at school.
Except maybe his best friend, who's mother had approached the teen last summer with an offer for some sex if he would "pretend to be 18 for the night." According to police, Wendy Crowell, 37, then spent the next three week having sex with the high school boy (15 at the time) as part of a summer fling. The sexual encounters allegedly took place in the Crowell's family homw and in a parked care at the end of a cul-de-sac. How romantic!
According to police, the victim's mother had “a gut feeling” that something was up, looked at the teen's phone and discovered some incriminating text messages, including one where the star-crossed lovers wrote that they loved each other.
Crowel now faces five counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and five counts of sexual assault,
