A 49-year-old mother, Shannon O’Connor, is facing 63 charges of child abuse for organizing underage sex parties for her teenage son and his friends.
She is also accused of pressuring children as young as 13 to binge on alcoholic drinks and have sex for her own pleasure during parties at her $4.7 million Los Gatos home in California, Daily Mail reports.
She has now been indicted on 63 charges by a grand jury in Santa Clara.
A judge offered her a 17-year sentence for a guilty plea in May but 24 more charges of child abuse were added to her initial charges and the new charges could leave her facing decades behind bars.
“She’s going to see more time, which is my end goal,” said the mother of one of the teenage victims.
She’s a menace to society and is clearly unwell. The more that comes out about her predatory ways, the better.”
Some of the alleged parties took place at O’Connor’s mansion in Los Gatos as her husband was away, while others were organized at Airbnb locations in Lake Tahoe and Santa Cruz.
“She would reject girls as guests by saying they weren’t ‘pretty enough’ or didn’t ‘put out’,” court documents state.
Prosecutors allege she bought beer, vodka, whiskey and other liquor and encouraged the teens, who were mostly 14 and 15, to drink to the point of unconsciousness.
She also told them to keep the gatherings a secret and, on several occasions, helped teens sneak out of their homes in the middle of the night to attend them, according to court documents.
At a December 2020 party, O’Connor allegedly handed a condom to a boy and pushed him into a room with an intoxicated girl. Both were minors.
