A Maryville woman was arrested Tuesday on charges of aggravated statutory rape stemming from an incident allegedly involving two juvenile boys.
Teresa Lynn Forester, 43, McGhee Street, was being held in the Blount County Detention Facility in lieu of $30,000 bond on two charges of aggravated statutory rape. She is scheduled to appear at a 9 a.m. Tuesday hearing in Blount County General Sessions Court.
Police responded to Forester’s home Friday after receiving a call from a concerned resident who said that her son’s friend had told her he was raped while spending the night at Forester’s home, according to a Maryville Police report. The caller also advised that the boy was at Forester’s home.
When officers arrived at the residence, they found two 14-year-old boys, along with Forester.
The 14-year-old victim told police that Forester had invited him and three other juvenile boys to her home to spend the night. The boy said this occurred on a Friday about a month to six weeks prior to the report date.
The boy said Forester poured him a shot of whiskey before everyone went to bed in her room. Forester, who was reportedly wearing only a transparent bra and panties, then allegedly had intercourse with him while two of the other boys watched, he said. Forester then performed oral sex on another boy, he said.
On Monday, detectives spoke with a 16-year-old boy who was also at Forester’s home the night of the incident. He told police that Forester gave him vodka punch and performed oral sex on him in her bedroom.
Forester was then taken into custody Tuesday, said Maryville Police Deputy Chief Greg Cooke, who explained that since Forester was more than 10 years older than the victims, she was charged with two counts of aggravated statutory rape.
“Through our investigation we believe (Forester) had sexual contact with two teenage juvenile boys,” Cooke said. “Even with the arrest, our investigation is still ongoing.”
