According to the criminal complaint, Angela D’Alessandro befriended the then 14-year-old victim and her mother at the Giant Pharmacy in Plymouth Meeting.
The family said at the time D’Alessandro offered to help with the teen’s anxiety and depression.
Then, in early 2018, D’Alessandro allegedly sent the victim a Hallmark card with her phone number.
The two began texting and over the coming weeks she is said to have kissed and fondled the teen, showered her with gifts including a Pandora bracelet and expressed her desire to have sex with the teenage girl.
According to the criminal complaint, the victim expressed her discomfort at the inappropriate relationship before it could escalate into sex.
The victim and her mother went to the police. In January 2021, D’Alessandro was charged with unlawful contact with a minor indecent assault and other charges.
In May, she pleaded guilty to unlawful contact with a minor.
