Charges reduced against Stafford woman
The case against a Stafford woman accused of providing sex and drugs to a 15-year-old boy ended Thursday with greatly reduced charges.
Kelly C. Blazek, 33, started the day charged with distributing drugs to a minor and crimes against nature, charges that carry a maximum combined penalty of 50 years in prison.
But prior to the start of a scheduled preliminary hearing in Stafford Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, Blazek accepted a deal in which she pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors.
She was convicted of two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and got no jail time except for the few days she had already served after her arrest.
Defense attorney Mark Murphy said Blazek has maintained from the start that all of the allegations involving the boy were untrue.
But Murphy said Blazek accepted the offer from prosecutor Tara Mooney because she wanted to get the ordeal over with.
“She is adamant that none of the things the boy claimed are true,” Murphy said. “But she’s anxious to get on with her life.”
Blazek was arrested in March after the boy, now 16, told Detective Tim Covington about incidents that the boy claimed happened in May or June of last year.
The boy said he rode with Blazek to Triangle one day to get some pills he referred to as “roxies.” That’s a street name for a form of Oxycodone.
When they returned to Blazek’s home in southern Stafford, according to court records, the boy said Blazek offered him a pill in exchange for sex.
He said she then initiated sexual relations. The boy said he didn’t try to stop her, but told her it was wrong.
