$500K bond set in Clark County for Henryville woman accused of molesting boys

Mother of victim concerned suspect might have been pregnant

A Henryville woman accused of having sex with two 12-year-old boys will be held on $500,000 cash bond after her initial hearing Monday afternoon.

Sheila K. Granger, 33, appeared in Clark County Superior Court No. 1 Monday on eight counts of child molesting and one count of child solicitation.

Judge Larry Blanton, of Orange County, who was filling in for Judge Vicki Carmichael, entered a preliminary not guilty plea for Granger.

The accused knew the two boys from church, and her husband had coached them in a youth football league in Henryville, according to police. The alleged abuse began in August 2007 and lasted until December 2008. A probable-cause affidavit released Monday revealed many new details of the alleged offenses, first reported Saturday in The Evening News.

The mother of one of the victims told police she feared that Granger may have been impregnated by one of the boys.

The mother said that in September, Granger confided that she had missed a period and also that her husband had surgery to prevent him from having more children. The woman said she initially thought Granger might have been having an affair, but became concerned when she learned her son had been abused.

“That will be part of the investigation, determining the veracity of the statements [about the missed period],” Chief Deputy Prosecutor Jeremy Mull said.

He said he did not know if Granger is or was pregnant, and said they would check the availability of medical records. Granger did not show signs of pregnancy when walking to court.

One of the boys told police that Granger had bought him clothing, football gear and games. He also said Granger had taken him roller skating, to dances and to games at school. He said he initially resisted the touching by Granger. Later on, Granger allegedly told him she loved him, sometimes saying more than her husband.
