A Lexington woman was released on bond this week after signing a confession that she gave alcohol and showed pornography to a group of 14-year-old boys at her house.
The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department has charged Susan Russell Hammond, 47, Old Town Drive, with contributing to the delinquency of a minor in the incident. She turned herself in Monday morning and was released the same day on a $10,000 bond, the sheriff’s department said.
A warrant was issued for Hammond after the mothers of some of the boys reported the incident Aug. 19. It came to one mother’s attention Aug. 13 when she noticed a sexually explicit Facebook conversation between her son and an unknown person. Her son identified the other person as Hammond and told her Hammond had shown him and others pornography and given them alcohol in July, according to the incident report.
The report, largely based on statements from the mothers of the victims, states that on July 26, the boys went to Hammond’s home to watch a movie. Hammond was known to them through their school’s soccer program.
After watching a movie, the boys said Hammond went into her room and returned with a pornographic movie called “The Wedding”, which they watched. They said Hammond also gave them shots of liquor.
