Woman Arrested For Knowingly Letting Live-In Boyfriend Sexually Abuse 7-Year-Old

MAY 29, 2017  —  By Corinne Sanders

In 2015, 50-year-old Marion Keithline from Overfield Township, Pennsylvania, met 47-year-old Eric Popejoy on a dating website.

The pair hit it off and Popejoy came to live with Keithline and a seven-year-old girl she was caring for in her mobile home. The only problem? Popejoy is a registered sex offender who, in 1992, was convicted in Florida of lewd and lascivious behavior involving a person under 16 -- but Keithline didn't seem to mind at all, and disgustingly enough, let her boyfriend sexually abuse the little girl for over a year. She also exposed the girl to sexually explicit photos on her phone.

Despite the child telling Keithline and others that she was being raped, nobody alerted police. When they finally did become aware of the situation, they arrested Keithline and charged her with felony reckless endangerment, endangering the welfare of a child, and three counts of corruption of minors.

In February, Popejoy was arrested on felony counts of rape, statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault of a child, corruption of minors, criminal use of a communication facility, child pornography, and failure to register with state police as a sex offender.
