South Carolina Babysitter Jailed For Sexually Assaulting 13-Year-Old Boy


Last March Susan Tappeiner, 42-year-old Bluffton mother was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy she had been baby-sitting. Tappeiner faces criminal sexual conduct charges after she allegedly assaulted the boy in August while baby-sitting him and his sisters.
Last week in the Beaufort County Courthouse, Tappeiner was convicted by a jury of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor after two hours of deliberation.

The boy testified that on Aug. 15, 2008, he was watching movies with Tappeiner, her husband and two daughters, his sisters and another neighborhood girl at the Tappeiners' home.

After everyone fell asleep, he said, Tappeiner grabbed him by the arm and dragged him to her daughter's bedroom. She locked the door and struck him when he tried to escape, he told jurors. He testified that Tappeiner forced him to perform oral sex on her, then have sexual intercourse. He said Tappeiner told him not to tell anyone what had happened.

Jennifer M. Dibley, 34-year-old Bremerton woman, Jennifer M. Dibley, was accused of engaging in sex with a 14-year-old boy back in April 2009 and charged with a third-degree rape charge. Dibley pleaded guilty in September 2009 to one count of third-degree child rape.

In November Dibley, now 35, was sentenced to 14 months in prison by Judge Sally Olsen. Olsen had a narrow 12 to 14 month range to choose from; she went with the higher end of the range.

In court, Dibley was contrite, accepted responsibility for her actions and pledged to lead a productive life once she's released from prison.
The 14-year-old’s father told Olsen that Dibley had done irreparable harm and that he had lost interest in his school activities following the incidents, which prosecutors say occurred in March and April.

30 day sentence for sexual assault

Sue Ann Close, 53-year-old woman from Beaverton, Oregon, was arrested in October 2008 and arraigned in Clatsop County Courthouse Thursday on rape charges. Close was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old boy, and the charges included two counts each of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, third-degree rape, third-degree sodomy and unlawfully delivering prescription medications to a minor.

According to prosecutor Mrs Close had sex with a 15-year-old boy while visiting Seaside during Spring Break 2008.

Buzzard said Close gave the boy's girlfriend sleeping pills so she wouldn't be aware of what she intended to do, then she had sex with the boy. Close was also charged with other sex crimes concerning the same boy in Washington County. Authorities there agreed to drop charges when prosecutors in Clatsop County reached their agreement with the defense.

While in Seaside Close gave the boy's girlfriend sleeping pills so the girl would sleep while Close used the victim for her own needs. Before leaving Seaside, Close suggested the three cut their hands and make a "blood pact" not to tell anyone what had happened - although all the while, the boy's girlfriend was unaware of what the pact was about.

Sue Ann Close pleaded guilty to misdemeanor third-degree sex abuse in a Clatsop County Courtroom, Judge Philip Nelson sentenced her to 30 days in jail and two years of probation. She will be required to register as a sex offender.
