Shelby Foster, 24, of Benld received two felony charges from the Macoupin County State Attorney Office June 28 in connection to an incident in which she was grooming and delivering a controlled substance.
On Mar. 9, a Gillespie Police Department officer was notified about suspicious text messages that had been sent to a minor.
The subsequent investigation by the GPD led to the discovery that Foster knowingly used a cell phone to seduce a minor with the intent to commit the offense of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
Foster also reportedly delivered less than 15 grams of a schedule IV substance.
The charges issued in this case are based only upon probable cause, and not an indication of guilt. The defendant is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
