Woman admits sex with teens, police say

        LEBANON - A 48-year-old private tutor and elementary school volunteer told police that she had sex with two teen-aged boys at her Lebanon Road apartment and smoked marijuana with five others there, a detective testified Thursday.

        Paula Caddo of South Lebanon already is charged with corruption of a minor and corrupting another with drugs involving a 15-year-old boy.

        However, Warren County Assistant Prosecutor Leslie Meyer said she expects more charges to be filed against Ms. Caddo involving other juveniles.

        Ms. Caddo, who is jailed in lieu of $25,000, could face indictment on the charges involving the 15-year-old boy as early as today at the grand jury's next session.

        Judge Dallas Powers, of Warren County Court, determined Thursday that there was enough evidence to send the case to the grand jury.

        Rusty Teague, a Warren County sheriff's detective, told the judge he began investigating Ms. Caddo on Oct. 18 after deputies in South Lebanon received information that Ms. Caddo might be sexually abusing minors.

        He said he interviewed Ms. Caddo that night, searched her apartment with her consent, and took several items, including sex toys, as evidence.

        “Several juveniles made allegations of improper activity within her residence and they had named specific items in her residence. That's what we were looking for,” Detective Teague testified.

        Although Ms. Caddo gave police the names of the boys she had sex with and smoked marijuana with, others have come forward with similar allegations, he said.

        Detective Teague said Ms. Caddo, a recently retired computer programmer, told him that she suffered from an anxiety order and “sexual problems.”

        Police and school district officials have said the accusations against Ms. Caddo are not related to her volunteer work at South Lebanon Elementary. She began volunteering at the school on some Fridays last year and became involved through her employment with Federated Department Stores, a Kings Local School District spokeswoman said.
