PHOENIX (AP) _ The wife of a Maricopa County supervisor has pleaded guilty in a sexual misconduct case involving a teenage boy.
Prosecutors say Susan Brock pleaded guilty Monday afternoon to three counts of attempted sexual conduct with a minor.
The Pinal County Attorney's office released a statement stating, "....Brock's plea agreement was accepted by the court. She will be sentenced to between seven and 15 years in prison for one of the three counts. The plea agreement stipulated that the sentence for the other two counts will be lifetime probation. Also, Brock will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life...."
The saga of the Brock family has been unfolding like a bad soap opera. One cannot help but wonder whats going through the mind of Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock at this point. A devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, hes caught in a very tight spot, putting his faith through a very severe test.
On October 26, 2010, Fulton Brocks wife, 48-year-old Susan Brock, was arrested amidst accusations of having sex about 30 times over a three-year period with a teenage boy, starting when the teen was 14. Shortly after that in mid-November, Fulton Brock filed for divorce.
And now Fulton Brock is shell-shocked with the arrest of Rachel Katherine Brock, Susan Brocks 21-year-old daughter, on three counts of sexual conduct with the same boy her mother is accused of molesting and at least one count of transmitting obscene material. None of the acts involved intercourse.
The statement released by the Chandler Police Department reads: Rachel Brock committed numerous acts of sexual conduct with a minor and at least one count of furnishing harmful items to a minor. At the time the crimes occurred the victim was under fifteen years of age, classifying them as dangerous crimes against children. The victim in this case is the same child allegedly victimized by Susan Brock.
Rachel Brock allegedly had sexual trysts with the boy from February, 2007, to August, 2008 making her 18 at the time, and the boy 13. Like her mother, it appears the younger Brock has an affinity for road head.
In her first court appearance December 30, 2010, the judge read off the charges against Rachel Brock as: three counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of providing obscene material to a minor.
Chandler police Sgt. Joe Favazzo said it appears that Susan and Rachel Brock didnt know about each others relationship with the teen.
A shell-shocked Fulton Brock issued the following statement:
Shocked and devastated are not words sufficient to describe the news this day or what has transpired over the past two months. In October, my wife of 28 years was arrested and charged with having an inappropriate relationship with a minor. Now, my daughter has been arrested, pending charges.
She is being accused of having a relationship with the same young man when she was 18.
I have filed to divorce my wife. I cannot divorce my daughter. She is my blood. I will always be her Dad. And she needs one now more than ever.
All families are challenged. But no family should ever be challenged this way whether it be ours, or that of the victim and his family.
Justice demands answers and cooperation.
Nothing can ever make this situation right other than raising awareness so other families can avoid such sorrow. As a person of faith I ask for your continued prayers.
A third woman, Christian Hart Weems, 37, was arrested in the case on December 28 on suspicion of obstructing a criminal investigation and conspiracy to commit computer tampering. Shes accused of deleting potentially incriminating e-mails between the boy and Susan Brock. Police say Weems is a friend of Susan Brock
Both women were being held at the Maricopa County jail.

Additional story on the Brock case:
The case of Susan Brock, the now-estranged wife of Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock, took another turn on December 28th, 2010 when a 37-year-old Chandler woman who was a friend of Brock's was arrested. Christian Hart Weems was arrested for conspiracy to commit computer tampering or altering of data, computer tampering or altering of data, hindering prosecution, and tampering with physical evidence, all felonies; she is accused of destroying and altering evidence in the personal email account of the boy Susan Brock has been charged with molesting over a three-year period. Although Weems was initially booked into the Maricopa County Jail in Phoenix, the Phoenix New Times reports that she has since been released on her own recognizance, and is due back in court on January 12th. It has now been confirmed that, like Susan Brock, Christian Weems is also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The scheme: Court documents show that Brock and the boy communicated through the Yahoo email account. The boy would write in a draft the time she should pick him around the corner of his house. Brock, who had the boy's password, would log in and read the drafts. As a result, there was no record of messages being sent and the boy's parents would not find out. Not only did the boy's parents forbid Susan Brock to have contact with him, but the boy's high school principal also had warned Brock to stay off of school grounds.
The obstruction: During a jailhouse phone call on November 2nd, it is alleged that Weems coaxed Brock into revealing the password to the Yahoo email account. Once in there, Weems allegedly altered, damaged or destroyed potential evidence that would have incriminated Susan Brock.
Prayers for all concerned.
Beyond being just gross.....these people are sick.
Yes, but cases like this are known in any culture and time. There are far better indicators of the sickness, like the huge illegitimacy rates.
I do wonder if the media doen’t cover more of these stories now compared to years ago.
"Not only did the boy's parents forbid Susan Brock to have contact with him, but the boy's high school principal also had warned Brock to stay off of school grounds.
The principal should be fired then, he violated the law in not reporting what he knew.
I don’t know what you can do to parents who knew and did nothing.
She can share a cell with her mom.
She can share a cell with her mom.
She can share a cell with her mom.
We find you both guilty and you are sentenced to the Isle of Lesbos for the rest of your natural lives.
May God have mercy on your souls.
The Mom: Guilty.
The Daughter: Really Guilty.
Seriously, though, there’s a big difference between a 14 year old and a 17 year old. It really is a crime to rob someone of their childhood.
I’m shocked and disgusted by this.
And if the mother had been pretty the FR community of idiots would chime in, “Not guilty!”
