Woman Arrested For Alleged Sex With Three High School Football Players
Mary Frances Fletcher doesn’t like the Mount Shasta High School football team. Mary Frances Fletcher LOVES the Mount Shasta High School football team. She loves the Mount Shasta High School football team so much that she really supports them hard. Too hard actually if the allegations of her having sex with three members of the football team are true.
The 42-year-old woman from California was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly sexually exploiting three high school students. Fletcher is accused of unlawful sexual intercourse and knowingly dissuading a witness or victim of a crime, the sheriff’s office said.
The sexual assault case started last September when the Mount Shasta Police Department received a complaint. Investigators discovered that Fletcher was working with a photographer who was doing a photoshoot of the football team. That is reportedly where Fletcher made the acquaintance of one of the students.
“It was kind of a chance encounter and she evidently developed a relationship with the boys at a later time,” said Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey.
“I have spoken with some of the victims, and you know, these cases are always challenging,” said District Attorney Kirk Andrus. “I mean, especially for a young person that are, by definition, not prepared for this kind of relationship. Relationship is probably the wrong word, but they’re not prepared for this kind of interaction with an adult.”
The case is still under investigation and authorities are asking anyone with information about the case to call the sheriff’s Major Crimes’ Unit att (530) 841-2900.
Fletcher was released after posting $10,000 bail. She is due back in court to be arraigned on March 22.
