Woman, 64, charged with Indecency with a Child

- A 64-year-old woman has been arrested on an Indecency with a Child 2nd degree Felony Warrant.  

Fort Bend County officials say Deborah Helen Sutter, 64, owas taken into custody and is in the county jail on a $50,000 bond.

Sutter, of Rosenberg, was arrested at her place of employment in Sugar Land after an investigation began on May 16, 2018.        

Surveillance footage captured improper contact between Sutter and a juvenile in custody at the Fort Bend County Juvenile Facility.

Sutter was a volunteer and mentor at the facility which enabled her to gain access to the juvenile.

Detectives met with the facility’s staff and reviewed surveillance footage of Sutter’s visits and found there were several occasions that Sutter made sexual contact with the juvenile.  

Detectives are gathering information as to all the juveniles Sutter has mentored since she gained access to them approximately three years ago.

The mentoring program is set up by the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department, which runs background checks and fingerprint checks on the mentors annually.

Detectives interviewed Sutter who has admitted to the indecency with a child.

"This case is disturbing and disgusting,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls. “Here is a woman who completely took advantage of her position as a mentor to behave as a predator.”

This case is still under investigation.
