A Los Gatos mother accused of hosting parties and providing alcohol to underage kids was in Santa Clara County court Monday morning.
Shannon O'Connor, the so-called party mom, was ordered to retur to court Nov. 6 for a preliminary hearing. She faces 39 felony counts, including sexual battery, and is still in custody. She was a no-show at a scheuled hearing last week because she was in the hospital to be treated for a skin infection.
O'Connor told NBC Bay Area's investigative unit she had "wounds packed full of gauze in two locations." She later added, "I've been waiting two years for this moment. I don’t want this postponed. I want to move forward."
O'Connor says she developed some sort of brown bites or lumps that have become infected during her custody at Elmwood Correctional Facility in Milpitas.
O'Connor was hospitalized in October after she was assaulted by five other inmates and suffered a head injury, concussion and broken nose, NBC Bay Area confirmed.
She has been in custody since her arrest in October 2021.
The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office claims that for eight months, O'Connor provided enough alcohol for her 14-year old son and his friends to get drunk, then encouraged sexual activity among them, some of which she watched.Get a weekly recap of the latest San Francisco Bay Area housing news.
