Pennsylvania Woman, Katherine Dennery, Pleads Guilty To Sexually Assaulting 13-Year-Old Boy

September 17th 2009

A 26-year-old Souderton woman has admitted to having sexual and indecent contact with a 13-year-old boy.

Katherine M. Dennery, (pictured left) of the 200 block of East Chestnut Street, pleaded guilty in Montgomery County Court on Wednesday to charges of indecent assault, statutory sexual assault and corruption of minors in connection with incidents that occurred in April.

The open plea means Dennery, formerly of the 800 block of Walnut Street in Lansdale, has no deals with prosecutors regarding her potential sentence. Dennery faces a possible maximum sentence of 15 to 30 years in prison on the charges.

Judge Thomas P. Rogers deferred sentencing so that court officials can complete a background investigative report about Dennery. The judge will use that report to assist him in sentencing Dennery later this year.

Dennery, who remains in prison without bail pending sentencing, also faces an evaluation by the Pennsylvania Sexual Offender Assessment Board, which will determine if she meets criteria under Megan’s Law to be declared to be a sexually violent predator.

Those deemed to be predators face more stringent restrictions under Megan’s Law, including mandatory counseling, a lifetime requirement to report their addresses to state police and community notification about their living arrangements.

An investigation of Dennery began in May when a former neighbor of Dennery’s notified Lansdale police that she discovered Dennery having sexual contact with a 13-year-old boy inside Dennery’s then Walnut Street home in April.

The neighbor, according to a criminal complaint, retrieved Dennery’s camera phone and photographed the assault.

However, Dennery then confronted the neighbor, grabbed the phone and deleted the photograph, according to the criminal complaint filed by Lansdale Police Officer Michael Trail.

When police interviewed the boy, he told authorities that he was at Dennery’s home when she propositioned him for sex and lured him to her basement by furnishing him with alcohol to drink, according to court papers.

The boy told police that Dennery had sexual contact with him during that evening. Another 13-year-old boy also witnessed the assault, court documents indicate.

The investigation revealed that Dennery also furnished alcohol to the second 13-year-old boy that day, according to the criminal complaint.

When Dennery was interviewed by police, she allegedly admitted to the sexual contact with the boy and admitted that she knew he was only 13 years old.
