A woman who directed a center for teenagers with sexual behavior problems is accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old client.
Teresa Lee Cope, 34, of Springville was arrested last week on suspicion of felony sex crimes in connection to reports that the boy had been abused while at Birdseye Residential Treatment Center in Spanish Fork Canyon. Birdseye advertises itself as a program "for sexual behavioral problems and pornography addiction."
The teen recently told his parents about sexual encounters that allegedly occurred about a year ago, said Utah County sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon. Cannon would not describe the encounters except to say Cope required the teen to perform some sex acts, and "some she did to him."
