Brock's daughter arrested, accused of sexual conduct with same teenPosted: Updated:
CHANDLER -- Chandler police detectives arrested a woman for sexual conduct with a minor two months after her mother was arrested for allegedly having a sexual relationship with the same victim.
Rachel Katherine Brock, 21, was arrested Wednesday afternoon near 44th Street and Camelback Road as part of an ongoing investigation surrounding her mother, Susan Brock.
According to the Chandler Police Department, between February 2007 and August 2008, Rachel Brock committed numerous acts of sexual conduct with a minor.
She was booked into the Maricopa County jail in Phoenix on three counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of offering obscene material to a minor.
Sgt. Joe Favazzo said the victim was younger than 15 years old at the time the crimes reportedly occurred, classifying them as dangerous crimes against children.
The victim in this case, who is now 17, is the same boy allegedly victimized by Susan Brock, who is the wife of Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock. He filed for divorce after the allegations surfaced.
In October, the teen's parents contacted police after they learned of steamy text messages reportedly exchanged between their son and Susan Brock. The teen told police he had been meeting Brock for sexual trysts since he was 14.
According to court paperwork, the first sexual contact with Rachel was when the victim was 13.
Susan Brock was arrested and pleaded not guilty to charges of child molestation and sexual conduct with a minor.
Susan Brock's friend, Christian Hart Weems, was arrested Tuesday evening for allegedly tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution in connection to the sexual molestation case.
Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock issued the following statement Thursday on the arrest of his wife's friend and his daughter:
“Shocked and devastated are not words sufficient to describe the news this day or what has transpired over the past two months. In October, my wife of 28 years was arrested and charged with having an inappropriate relationship with a minor.
Now, my daughter has been arrested, pending charges.
She is being accused of having a relationship with the same young man when she was 18.
I have filed to divorce my wife. I cannot divorce my daughter. She is my blood. I will always be her Dad. And she needs one now more than ever.
All families are challenged. But no family should ever be challenged this way whether it be ours, or that of the victim and his family.
Justice demands answers and cooperation.
Nothing can ever make this situation right other than raising awareness so other families can avoid such sorrow. As a person of faith I ask for your continued prayers.”
