Amalia Utz Oak Park, California mother arrested after allegedly having sex with two of her teen son’s friends, hosting ‘wild parties’ and plying them with drugs and alcohol.
Amalia Marie Utz, 47, of Oak Park, was arrested last Wednesday following a week-long investigation into ‘a rumor’ about a woman who’d allegedly assaulted a 14-year-old boy back in September.
As part of the probe, the East County Investigations Bureau Major Crimes Sexual Assault Unit conducted interviews and learned of a second alleged victim, also age 14, from Thousand Oaks.
Utz, whose son is enrolled in Medea Creek Middle School in Oak Pak, is suspected of engaging in sexual acts with the two 14-year-olds and performing oral sex on a minor.
Oak Park Unified School District Superintendent Dr Tony Knight confirmed Utz’s arrest in a letter sent to parents last week, KCAL reported.
Utz was taken into custody after someone anonymously reported her alleged activities involving underage boys to the school district.
‘This information was immediately turned over to county authorities and we have since been cooperating with them throughout the investigation,’ Knight said, adding ‘It is possible that more than two students were involved.’
In his letter, Knight thanked students and parents for coming forward theacorn reported.
‘We cannot overemphasize the importance of speaking up when you hear or see something that is suspicious. Our instincts as parents and educators are very often right,’ Knight said.
Cops called to Oak Park residences for multiple wild parties:
During the investigation that was launched on October 1, police learned that the 47-year-old mom allegedly had been hosting alcohol- and drug-fueled parties for her son and his friends in her apartment in the Shadow Ridge Condominiums complex, located across the street from Oak Park High School.
But there’s more.
Cops had been called to the woman’s residence multiple times for ‘juvenile disturbances,’ teens smoking marijuana and consuming alcohol, as well as reckless driving.
According to police and Utz’s neighbors, the home had been known for drawing large crowds of children, including teenage runaways.
Come October 9, Utz was booked into the Ventura County Jail on charges of committing lewd acts with a child and oral copulation with a minor under the age of 16.
Utz was released after posting $20,000 bail following her October 9 arrest. She is due back in court on October 25.
Not immediately clear was what led to the 47 year old woman sexually preying on the teen minor boys and subjugating them.
