Alberta woman charged with sexual assault

An Alberta woman is charged with six counts of sexually assault involving a foster son in her care from March 24 through Oct. 15, a complaint filed in Stevens County District Court said.

Katelyn Toni Nolting, 26, is charged with three felony counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, position of authority and three counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, significant relationship. The complaint alleges Nolting sexually assaulted a foster son who was younger than 16 and older than 13 at the time of the incidents.

The Stevens County Sheriff's Office investigated a report of a photo Nolting had taken of she and the victim in the shower and a report of a text sent by Nolting that said she had sex with the victim, the complaint said.

In an Oct. 15 interview with law enforcement, Nolting admitted she had sexually assaulted the victim one time, the complaint alleges. The victim told a sheriff's deputy there were as many as four incidents, the complaint alleges.

Nolting appeared in court Oct. 17 and was released after posting bail.
