Sex Abuse Of Girls Throws Woman In Jail

Full story and MySpace profile:

Laura M. Shaffer probably should not have been associating with 13-year-old girls, but she probably didn’t have any other friends, said her defense attorney Randall T. Hetrick.

Hetrick laid out a grim picture of his client, who admitted indecently assaulting and corrupting the morals of two 13-year-old girls.

Ms. Shaffer, 20, of 111 Dale St., Grove City, who will spend at least 8 months in Mercer County Jail, has a lengthy juvenile criminal record and mental health problems, Hetrick said. She has only a ninth-grade education, and a low IQ and self-esteem, he said.

“We would just ask the court for whatever leniency is possible,” Hetrick said Friday.

According to state police, Ms. Shaffer inappropriately touched a 13-year-old girl Sept. 15, 2005, at a home in Springfield Township. The girl told police the touching occurred more than 10 times over a year’s time at the home and a nearby park.
