ARVADA, Colorado (AP) -- A 40-year-old woman held sex and drug parties with teenage boys, telling police she wanted
to be a "cool mom," authorities say.
Sylvia Johnson allegedly provided marijuana, methamphetamine and alcohol to eight boys at parties held at her
suburban Denver home in 2003 and 2004. According to court papers, she admitted having sex with five of the boys.
One of the boys told his mother, and Johnson was arrested in
December and charged with offenses including sexual assault and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
According to court papers, Johnson told investigators she was not popular in high school and had finally started
"feeling like one of the group."
"She described herself as a 'cool mom,'" police said.
Authorities did not say how many children she has or whether any of them were at the parties.
A message left at the number listed for Johnson was not immediately returned.
