Sharpsburg rec official removed in sex scandal

Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

Sharpsburg council decided Tuesday night to remove Susan Sundo from her position as head of the borough's recreation board upon learning that she had been arrested earlier in the day on charges of having sex with a 15-year-old boy.

Sundo, 45, is charged with corruption of minors, statutory sexual assault and related crimes for what the teen told Allegheny County and borough police was a five-month relationship.

“I was shocked,” Mayor Richard Panza said. “The first we heard of it was (Tuesday night) when the chief told us in executive session. As soon as council came out of executive session, the first thing they did was remove her from the recreation committee.”

The teen told police that they had sex on at least a dozen occasions, including trysts in Sundo's sport utility vehicle and her home.

Sundo is being held in the Allegheny County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail to await a preliminary hearing scheduled Jan. 16. She was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
