ROGERS CO., Okla. - A Claremore woman is being charged with enabling child sexual abuse after allegedly soliciting sex from underage girls for her nephew.
According to court documents, Jessica Cleveland, 31, met and befriended two 14-year-old girls at a church in Catoosa. She began a relationship with the teens and introduced them to her nephew, 18-year-old Braeden Hendershott.
The court filing says Cleveland would make arrangements for the girls to meet up and have sex with Hendershott, even purchasing a morning after pill for one of the girls. Cleveland also purchased alcohol for the teens.
During separate police interviews, both girls stated Cleveland and Hendershott encouraged the girls to not tell anyone about drinking alcohol or having sex with him because he would "go to jail."
According to the report, Hendershott knew the girls were 14 years old.
Cleveland is being charged with two counts of enabling child sexual abuse and one count of furnishing alcoholic beverage to a minor.
Hendershott is being held in the Rogers County Jail on a $116,000 bond. He is being charged with three counts of second-degree rape, one count of forcible sodomy, one count of lewd or indecent acts to a child and one count of furnishing alcohol to a minor.
