| March 6, 2010

NEW CASTLE — Police have charged a Newark woman with raping a boy who was a member of her church youth choir.

Thirty-year-old Zipporah Holland-Samuels was arrested Thursday and taken into custody after failing to post $55,000 secured bail. She is charged with nine counts of fourth-degree rape and one count of second-degree rape.

Authorities said Holland-Samuels is a member of the adult choir at her church who began a sexual relationship with the boy in January after volunteering to assist with the youth choir.

Investigators said the victim, who was 15 when he met Holland-Samuels but has since turned 16, would go to her home to have sex instead of going to choir practice.–Del.-woman-charged-with-raping-teen-in-church-choir
