A counselor was arrested Thursday and accused of raping a 14-year-old boy in a residential program, according to an arrest warrant.
Stephanie Jo Emory, 29, of Elizabethtown is charged with third-degree rape; third-degree sodomy and third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.
According to her arrest warrant, between Nov. 25 and Nov. 27, 2016, Emory is accused of providing the boy alcohol while he was on a holiday pass from Spring Meadows Center in Mount Washington, where he was a resident and Emory was employed as a counselor. Spring Meadows is operated by Sunrise Children’s Services.
The rape and sodomy charges are Class D felonies punishable by one to five years in prison on each charge. Third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor is a misdemeanor.
This is Emory’s second set of sex charges involving the minor. She was arrested last month on a charge of performing a sex act on a 14-year-old boy in his room at Spring Meadows while she worked there.
She was charged with third-degree sodomy, first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor and first-offense trafficking in a legend drug, all Class D felonies punishable by one to five years in prison.
Emory was held in lieu of a $50,000 cash bond in the Hardin County jail.
