Woman with ‘sex rage’ arrested in Mesa

Aug 30, 2012, 4:21 PM | Updated: 5:29 pm

A Mesa mom faces child abuse charges after leaving her daughter in a park with strangers in order to satisfy her “sexual urges.”

Witnesses told police 43-year-old Laura Lee Kelly left her 6-year-old daughter alone with transients for more than four hours on Tuesday. The witness also claimed the girl had no water and no escape from the heat, as many people floating through the park took turns watching her.

Court documents said Kelly bought beer for the transients and later asked them to babysit the girl while “she went to make money.” She later told the officer she had sex with one man and performed oral sex on another.

She revealed to the officer she “felt a manic sexual rage inside of her which she cannot control and needed to have sex.”

The court papers also show Kelly worked for Mesa Public Schools and was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of her arrest.
