Care home sex predator ‘had half the boys’
A FEMALE worker at a care home for troubled teen boys has been accused of having sex with half of them.
Katherine Estep, 44 ( above), faces a total of 12 charges in a scandal involving five boys.
She is said to have touched all the lads’ genitals, given oral sex to three and flashed her breasts to one while forcing him to touch them.
Prosecutors say Estep held a position of special trust with the 16 and 17-year-olds which allowed her to “exercise undue influence” over them.
And court files say: “Estep coerced or enticed the young men into cooperating with her with these sexual acts.”
She allegedly also let some of the lads use her mobile phone and electronic cigarette and gave them sweets and pills.
Estep faces 17 charges including forcible sodomy and sexual abuse at The Journey Impact Ranch in Mona, Utah.
All the boys there have been moved to other facilities.
