A Greenwood woman is facing a criminal sexual conduct charge following investigations into a boy’s story of sexual abuse.
Shanna-Lea Marie Scruggs, 37, of 512 Reynolds Ave., Greenwood was arrested Thursday and charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
On Aug. 26, a Greenwood Police Department officer met with a preteen who said he had been sexually abused by the woman from about ages 6-8, the report said. He told police he was subjected to what he described as “secret touching” sessions.
The boy described seeing her take pain medication, alcohol and drugs she bought off the streets. He noticed that when she went to see doctors, she would indicate that she had pain everywhere on her body, and the boy took notes on the variety and amount of pills she took, the report said.
The boy said he felt angry, sad and embarrassed about what was happening, and the woman told him to keep these events private.
