Sex case against foster mom is abandoned by prosecutors

CROWN POINT | Prosecutors on Friday dismissed their case against a 35-year-old Cedar Lake foster mother accused of seducing a 15-year-old boy in her care.

Four felony charges were dropped based on a further review of the case, according to prosecutors.

Noelle Wolak, 35, was charged in June 2009 with two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and single counts of delinquency of a minor and child seduction.

The teen was one of five siblings placed with Wolak in December 2007, according to court documents.

The children were removed in August 2008, but the boy is alleged to have run away from his new foster home to be with Wolak.

The boy told police Wolak gave him alcohol in January 2008 while watching the Super Bowl after which he and Wolak had unprotected sex, court records state.
