(Newser) – A Chicago-area mother of three has been arrested, and accused of having sex with three teenage boys. Cathleen Miller, 40, allegedly bought booze and marijuana for her daughter’s male 14- and 15-year-old friends, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The alleged affairs came spilling into the open when the daughter walked in on her mother in the act.

The boy caught in the act later posted an apology on the daughter’s Facebook wall. His parents saw it, and alerted police. When police started asking questions, Miller briefly checked in to a mental hospital because she was considering suicide. She recently separated from a husband who she says beat her. “She does need some serious treatment,” one of her lawyers told Fox Chicago. Victims' relatives say there are more victims who so far have not come forward.
