A 26-year-old Middletown woman is accused of plying a 13-year-old boy with alcohol before allegedly sexually assaulting him last month.
After the assault, the accuser immediately told his parents that Bethann Wagner attempted to have sex with him, Middletown police said.
The teen disclosed the Aug. 21 sex act during a subsequent interview at the Children’s Advocacy Center in Doylestown, where he told authorities that Wagner had provided him with alcohol, according to a probable cause affidavit. He alleges Wagner poured a cup of vodka into his mouth, the affidavit said.''
After giving him the vodka, Wagner allegedly began passionately kissing the boy on a couch, court documents said. Another boy confirmed in a police interview that he witnessed the two kissing, police said.
The boy and Wagner then went across the street to another house where the entered an upstairs bedroom and engaged in sexual contact. At some point the boy told Wagner he didn’t want to have sex, and he left the house.
When he returned home, he told his parents what happened with Wagner, police said.
At her arraignment Monday night, Wagner, whose last address was Washington Avenue, claimed she had been homeless for two months.
She also had an active bench warrant for failing to appear last month for her formal arraignment on simple assault and related charges.
Wagner is charged with rape, statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault and related charges. She was arraigned before Penndel District Judge Daniel Baranoski and sent to Bucks County prison in lieu of 10 percent of $350,000 bail.
Baranoski included as bail conditions that Wagner have no contact with victims or witnesses, no unsupervised contact with minors and she must provide a valid address.
