Woman accused of having sex with teen barred from contact with him, his family
A woman accused of having sex with a teenage boy was barred from having any contact with him or his family, a judge ruled Wednesday.
District Justice Elissa Lang issued a no-contact order for Susan Sundo, 45, the former head of the Sharpsburg Recreation Committee. Lang continued Sundo's preliminary hearing until 10 a.m. on March 27 because her attorney, David Shrager, said he needs more time to review evidence.
“She has never had any contact with the law whatsoever,” Shrager said.
Shrager said his client is an “ordinary, everyday housewife.”
Sundo declined to comment as she left court.
Sundo was charged Jan. 8 with corruption of minors, statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and unlawful contact with a minor. She posted a $20,000 bond, was released from the Allegheny County Jail and ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
The teen told police they had sex on at least a dozen occasions, including trysts in Sundo‘s sport utility vehicle and her home over a five-month period.
Sharpsburg council removed her from the volunteer post on the committee.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
