A Los Gatos woman faces nearly 40 criminal charges, including 12 felonies, for allegedly encouraging young teenagers to drink and engage in sex acts, sometimes nonconsensually, at parties she hosted.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office announced on Tuesday that Shannon O'Connor, 47, is being extradited from her current home in Eagle, Idaho and will be arraigned "at a later date." O’Connor allegedly threw multiple parties for her teenage son and his friends, none of whom were older than 15, discouraging the children from telling their parents.
