Kuna couple charged in child sex case

October 24, 2013 

— The wife of a Kuna man accused of lewd contact with a teenage girl has also been arrested in connection with the case, according to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office.

Christina Rose Wisdom, 33, was arrested Wednesday, one week after her husband, 45-year-old Ron Wisdom, was charged with lewd conduct.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Patrick Orr said that Christina Wisdom knew that her husband had illegal sexual contact with the girl over a five-year period, but failed to report it to law enforcement. She also allegedly told the victim that she did not have to cooperate with the courts if she did not want to.

The investigation began in May, after deputies received a tip that Ron Wisdom was having sexual contact with the girl. He was arrested Oct. 17, two days after being indicted on te lewd contact charge.

Christina Wisdom has been charged with felony sexual abuse of a child under 16 and felony intimidation of a witness. She was arraigned in court Thursday, and is being held on a $250,000 bond.

Bond for Ron Wisdom was set at $500,000. He is set to enter a plea Oct 29, and faces up to life in prison if convicted.
