Mother, Richael Michel, Pleads Guilty To Sexually Assaulting 16-Year-Old Boy

September 27th 2009

A 45-year-old Fort Collins mother who enjoys animal costumes admitted Friday to

having sex with a teenage boy she introduced to the “furry” lifestyle.

Under the terms of her guilty-plea deal Friday,

Richael L. Michels, (pictured left) 45, must register as a sex offender and could still face jail time when she is sentenced by Larimer County Judge

Dave Williams on Nov. 12.

In exchange for pleading guilty to misdemeanor sexual assault and unlawful sexual

conduct, prosecutors dropped other charges, including felony sexual assault on a child.

Michels, who is married, now admits to having sex “on multiple occasions” with a

16-year-old boy she took to furry events.

Furries enjoy dressing up as animals, but members have said sex is not routinely part

of that fantasy. Michels allegedly dressed as a cat and went by the name “Kitten.”

At a hearing Friday, Michels told the judge she is bipolar, taking prescription drugs,

seeing a psychiatrist and undertaking other mental health treatment.

Michels’ husband first told the state Department of Human Services he thought his

wife was having the affair, after he grew suspicious about her activity on the Internet and she had become immersed in

the furry life style, according to the July arrest affidavit.

According to arrest documents, other members confronted Michels about the

inappropriate relationship, which included kissing and other displays of affection at events.

Michels was a friend to the boy’s parents.

According to the arrest affidavit, the boy told police that Michels “even made a

comment about the irony of (his) mom trusting her as a mentor . . . and the whole time she was having sex with

him.”
