SEX ABUSE-INDICTMENT
Alleged witch, boyfriend charged with sexual offenses against children in western Kentucky

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 12:39 PM EDT
HENDERSON, Ky.


A southern Indiana woman and her boyfriend have been charged with committing sexual offenses against children in western Kentucky after prosecutors say they threatened the children with "hexes and curses"

The Gleaner reported that 28-year-old Jessica M. Smith of Evansville, Ind., and her boyfriend, Michael W. Kurtz of Corydon, Ky., each face charges of sexual abuse and unlawful transactions with a minor.

Prosecutors say the couple hosted a party at Smith's house in Henderson where kids between the ages of 6 and 13 were involved in making and viewing pornography as well as live sexual performances.

Police say Smith described herself as a witch and threatened to put "hexes and curses" on the group if they told what had happened.

A grand jury handed up the charges on Tuesday.
