Bellevue investigates child molestation case

Express Staff Writer

Following a Thursday, Jan. 22, report, Bellevue police are investigating the alleged molestation of a child by his stepmother.

Bellevue Marshall Randy Tremble said the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare reported that a 15-year-old boy had been molested multiple times by his 29-year-old stepmother between October and Jan. 20. Tremble said he is considering seven charges of lewd and lascivious conduct on a minor.

Tremble said the boy’s father lived in the same household but apparently did not know about his wife’s behavior.

Tremble said he has spoken with the victim and his family but has not been able to locate the boy’s stepmother.

"The suspect has fled the area, and we are unable to contact her at this time," he said.

Tremble said a third party brought the issue to the attention of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, which, in turn, notified the police department.
