Ex-drug rehab employee arrested on rape complaint

EL RENO, Okla. (AP) — A former employee of an adolescent drug rehabilitation center in El Reno has been arrested for allegedly raping a 15-year-old boy who was a patient at the center.

Authorities told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/XkRkaU ) that the 32-year-old woman was arrested after the boy's mother reported that her son had been sexually molested. The former employee was being held in the Canadian County jail Thursday pending the filing of formal charges.

The woman worked at the Fort Reno Adolescent Drug and Rehabilitation Center. Authorities say the alleged acts occurred at the center, on field trips sponsored by the center and at an Oklahoma City-area motel.

Officials at the center say the woman worked as a youth guidance specialist for about five months before voluntarily leaving in July.
