Bail Revoked in Oklahoma Child Rape Case

A 37-year-old woman accused of a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old boy is back in jail after her bail was revoked.  According to prosecutors, Amy Blose, of Norman, Oklahoma, violated the conditions of her bail when she attempted to contact the alleged victim.  

Blose's Oklahoma sex crimes lawyer said that the allegation of  attempted contact was uncorroborated, and that his client should remain free on bail while awaiting trial. Blose was arrested in April on charges of three counts of first degree rape, three counts of forcible oral sodomy, one count of lewd or indecent acts, and one count of performing lewd acts in the presence of a child.  

The alleged victim's parents contacted police early in the year after they became suspicious that their son was involved in an inappropriate relationship with the boy.  Investigators say the boy admitted to a sexual relationship with Blose, and claim that Blose admitted that she sent text messages to the boy which could have been construed as inappropriate.

Although the alleged acts were supposedly consensual, no one beneath the age of 16 is able to consent to sexual contact in Oklahoma, and sex with a child under the age of 14 are charged as rape in the first degree.  Conviction of first degree rape in Oklahoma is punishable by a minimum of five years in prison.  

Furthermore, if Blose is convicted of the charges against her, she will be required to register as an Oklahoma Sex Offender for life. After her arrest in April, Blose and her Oklahoma rape defense attorney petitioned the court for a reduction in the restrictions set by her bail conditions.  Blose requested that the bond arrangement be modified so that she could visit her own two children and young family members without supervision.  

The alleged victim was a classmate of Blose's daughter.  The judge denied Blose's bail modification request. However, Blose is now accused of violating those bond conditions.  According to a 15-year-old girl, Blose took her to school, stopping off for a fast food burrito on the way.  The girl claims that Blose wrote a note and slipped it inside the burrito, asking her passenger to deliver the note to the alleged victim, with whom Blose was denied contact.

Assistant District Attorney Christy Miller says the terms of Blose's bail included her restrictions from contacting the alleged victim and from being around any children other than her own. Though Blose's Oklahoma criminal defense lawyer asserted that there was no proof that Blose violate the conditions or that she attempted to contact the boy, Special Judge Michael Tupper revoked her bail.
