Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, Penny Sue Blose allegedly videotaped and photographed sexual encounters with a known male victim and subsequently sent the explicit material via electronic communications and mail to multiple individuals, one of whom was a 15-year-old juvenile.

The complaint states that around 7:15 p.m. on December 21, 2017, Trooper Malloy interviewed a known female at PSP Punxsutawney. The female victim related that she started dating the known male victim in November of 2017, and Blose began calling and texting her via Facebook, threatening to send her and her family members and friends sexually explicit photos of herself and the male victim.

According to the complaint, on December 20, the female victim received a letter, with no return address, containing two photos of Blose and the male victim being romantically involved. The female victim’s son received a letter with the same pictures, and the female victim’s juvenile daughter opened the letter and saw the photos. The female victim’s sister also received a letter with a similar sexually explicit photo.

The female victim showed Trooper Malloy Facebook messages sent to her by Blose which said, “You don’t have to answer your phone but boy are you going to be sorry,” “I have had enough lies!” and “Time for some home movies,” and stated that the next message was a photo of three small video disks.

Trooper Malloy interviewed the known male victim at PSP Punxsutawney around 7:30 p.m. on December 21.

According to the complaint, the known male victim stated that sometime in mid to late November 2017, he went to see Blose, and they became romantically involved. He said that she videotaped the encounter without his knowledge, took snapshot photos from the video, and sent the photos to the known female victim and her family members.

He also related that on August 21, 2017, Blose sent him four labeled and laminated photos of himself in sexual poses, which he said she also sent to the female victim via Facebook.

During the interview, the male victim gave Trooper Malloy an envelope with his name and address containing the four sexually explicit photos that he received on August 21. Trooper Malloy noted he had previously seen one of the images on the female victim’s Facebook, and also noted sexually explicit text messages referring to the sent photographs, as well as self-incriminating statements, sent to the male victim from a phone used by Blose.

Around 6:45 p.m. on January 4, 2018, Trooper Malloy interviewed Blose at PSP Punxsutawney.

According to the complaint, Blose allegedly stated that when she “hooked up” with the male victim in November 2017, she found out that he was also romantically involved with the female victim. She told police she was angry and threatened the female victim that she was going to send her and her family and friends sexually explicit photos. Blose also claimed that the male victim knew she was video recording them engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Trooper Weaver interviewed Blose again around 3:00 p.m. on April 11, 2018.

According to the complaint, Blose confessed to sending the intimate images and said she regrets what she did. She indicated that a few of the images were from earlier on in her previous relationship with the male victim and that he was aware of them being captured, but also admitted that the most recent two images she disseminated were from November, and the male victim was not aware that the acts were being recorded.

Based on the investigation, Blose was arraigned on July 3, in Magisterial District Judge Jacqueline J. Mizerock’s office.
