RICHMOND, Texas - A mentor at the Fort
Bend County Juvenile Facility was arrested Tuesday after accusations
that she had sex with a juvenile there, deputies said.
Deborah Sutter, 64, of Rosenberg, was
charged with second-degree indecency with a child after an investigation
that began last Wednesday, according to Fort Bend County deputies.
Investigators said that Sutter,
a volunteer mentor, had sexual contact with a juvenile she was advising
several times and that surveillance cameras recorded the encounters.
All of the visits with the juveniles that
Sutter has mentored during the three years she volunteered at the
facility are also being reviewed, investigators said.
Deputies said that Sutter underwent background
and fingerprint checks annually to be part of the program that is
administered by the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department.
Sutter, who deputies said admitted to the crime, is being held in the Fort Bend County Jail on $50,000 bond.
Investigators said anyone who believes they
may have been victimized by Sutter is asked to call the Fort Bend County
Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4665.
