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.
