Former supervisor at Tulsa Boys’ Home arrested after allegedly raping 16-year-old boy | News

TULSA, Okla. – A former supervisor at the Tulsa Boys’ Home has been charged with second-degree rape of a 16-year-old boy.

Tulsa police said 25-year-old Ashley Cartwright was arrested last Thursday.

Police said she met with one of the 16-year-old boys on a weekend trip at the Motel 6 near Admiral and Sheridan.

Police said they met and had sex there twice in December.

At one point, police said she provided him with alcohol.

They also said the two once kissed on the Tulsa Boys’ Home campus and that she would get him candy and an iPhone and get him out of trouble.

FOX23 spoke with Tulsa Detective Sergeant Ryan Vermeer about the case Monday afternoon.

“She had a supervisory role over him. When you have someone who is not only responsible but hopefully also a role model for these boys. “Obviously having an inappropriate relationship that became sexual and romantic and also getting to the point where they were engaging in activities outside of the facility is very concerning,” Vermeer said.

Police said Cartwright has since resigned and the Tulsa Boys’ Home has been very cooperative in the investigation.
