The sentencing for the daughter of Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock will be delayed for about two months. Rachel Brock, 22, entered into a plea agreement in June on charges of two counts of felony child abuse for a sexual relationship with the same teenage boy molested by her mother. In April Susan Brock was sentenced to 13 years in prison.
Rachel Brock will be sentenced Oct. 20 by Pinal County Superior Court Commissioner Hank Gooday in a Maricopa County courtroom. She was originally scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 19, but her defense attorneys requested additional time to comply with the terms of her plea agreement, according to Pinal County spokeswoman Heather Murphy.
According to the plea agreement, Gooday has the discretion to sentence Rachel Brock, 22, to up to 10 years of probation and one year in jail.
When she was 18, Rachel Brock began having a relationship with the boy when he was 13 that included sexual touching and her sending nude photos of herself via text messages, according to court documents. She initially was charged with seven counts of sexual conduct with a minor and furnishing harmful materials to a minor. However, those charges were dismissed after she entered into the plea agreement.
After being arrested in December, Brock was arrested a second time in March after Pinal County prosecutors requested more information in the case. The sexual activities happened between August 2006 and August 2008, but did not include intercourse, according to Chandler police.
Susan Brock’s friend, Christian Hart Weems, 38, who was indicted on tampering with evidence-related charges involving a computer and interfering with the criminal investigation involving Susan Brock, is scheduled to go on trial Sept. 13.
