(WHAS11) - Sheila Granger was arrested over the weekend on nine felony charges that she molested two 12-year-old boys for more than a year.

We can't talk about all of the information in the arrest complaint, because it is so graphic and very disturbing.

But it outlines the stories of two Clark County boys who say they were sexually abused for months by the mother of their girlfriend who was also a friend of their parents.

She is a woman they say they should have been able to trust.

33-year-old Sheila Granger, a southern Indiana beautician, walked silently into Clark County Superior Court Monday afternoon.

She's charged with nine felony crimes that could land her in prison for more than 50 years if she is convicted.

Police say they began investigating her after they receiving a complaint from child protective services.

The two victims were both friends with her daughter, members of her church and even played on her husband's youth league football team.

According to investigators, the sexual contact between Granger and the boys began in august of 2007.

For seven pages, the document outlines instances in which Granger allegedly touched, sodomized and has intercourse with the two 12-year-old victims.

According to the sworn statement from police, most of the sexual activity took place at Granger's home, but it also happened at one of the victim's houses and at Granger's beauty shop in a back room, according to the report.

One boy describes a sex toy Granger allegedly kept in her dresser and told investigators he had sexual contact with Granger 15 times a month.

The other victim told police Granger has distinctive physical characteristics he wouldn't know except by seeing her nude.

The report also says granger would say to the boy that she loved him more than her husband and Granger allegedly told him she could go to jail for life if he ever told anyone.

In the complaint, the lead investigator includes a statement from one of the boy's mothers.

That woman says Granger confided that she "missed a period' and might be pregnant.

The witness found that troubling because she says granger had told her the Granger's husband had undergone a surgical procedure to prevent him from having children.

A man WHAS11 News talked to outside the courthouse says if the allegations are true, the boys will face a long recovery process.

He says he knows this because his two sisters were molested as children.

Granger was placed under a $500,000 bond at the hearing, then walked back to jail.

Her trial is scheduled for august 4th.

The victims' families have been told by prosecutors not to talk about the case.

Investigators are asking anyone else who might have relevant information to contact the Clark County sheriff's office.
