Indiana County couple accused of using boy, 15, for sex

Two Indiana County residents were charged Wednesday with statutory sexual assault and corruption of minors for sexual encounters between a 15-year-old boy and a 24-year-old woman this month.

CJ Elizabeth Adams, 24, of 205 Broadway St., Reynoldsville, and Charles V. Bruner III, 23, of 4576 Route 119, Home, are facing charges in connection with the incidents that allegedly occurred April 5 and April 14.

State police in Indiana allege Bruner drove Adams and the teen around in his van so they could have sex on April 5. Bruner is accused of locking the boy in a shed with Adams on April 14 so they could engage in sex again.

The relationship between Adams and Bruner could not be determined.

Bruner was arraigned before Homer City District Judge Susanne Steffee and released on $10,000 recognizance bond. Adams remains housed in the Indiana County Jail on a previous charge.

Preliminary hearings are tentatively scheduled Monday.
