Nurse arrested for rape, lewd acts with minor
NORMAN, Okla. – Inside a quiet Norman neighborhood, police say a young boy was raped repeatedly by one of the neighbors. “I think its morally wrong, I think it scars children for life,” says Cheryl Bredeson who lives in the subdivision where alleged abuse happened.
The offender, police say, is 37-year-old Amy Blose.
“These allegations are based on statements given by a victim 13 years of age and actually a friend of the victim came forward and disclosed that he had seen some of the inappropriate relationship,” District Attorney Greg Marshburn said.
Neighbors tell us Blose, who lives just feet away from a playground, is a wife, mother and nurse who spent time with many children in the area.
Kelly Wells, Norman Regional Health System Spokesperson with Moore Medical Center where Blose worked, released this statement: “Upon learning of this investigation, Norman Regional took immediate action and placed the individual in question on administrative leave with no further patient contact. Although none of the allegations against this individual related in any way to her employment with Norman Regional Health System, she has since been terminated.”
We have exclusive video of Blose, turning herself into authorities Monday after a warrant was issued for her arrest.
“I have a daughter who, when she was 16 in Alabama, was sexually abused by her coach. It was a real struggle for her to overcome. It took away something from her,” Bredeson said.
The affidavit goes into graphic details about how Blose abused the boy.
She is charged with eight felony counts including first-degree rape, forcible oral sodomy and performing lewd or indecent acts.
“And as a teacher, I’ve seen many abused kids. It damages them and scars them unless they get proper treatment,” Bredeson said.
“We requested a $100,000 bond and no contact with the victim, the judge ordered a $20,000 bond and ordered her not to have contact with children under the age of 18,” Marshburn said.
