Families relieved after sentencing review for Blose

NORMAN — Only one year after Amy Blose was convicted of more than 20 felony counts, a judicial review hearing for a possible reduced sentence took place Thursday in Cleveland County District Court.

District Judge Lori Walkley, who originally sentenced 39-year-old Blose, stuck with her initial sentence of 15 years. Blose was convicted last year with 24 felony charges of rape and other lewd misconduct connected to her sexual relationship with a then 13-year-old boy.

Walkley said from the minute Blose walked into her courtroom a year ago, waving at the cameras, snickering and flicking her hair, she knew what she was going to do.

“It was sociopathic behavior, all about me,” Walkley said.

Blose’s lawyer read letters from case managers, Blose’s psychologist and others saying that she has exhibited good behavior during her incarceration. He said she is receiving sex offender treatment and is consistently attending a group session. Her case manager said in a letter that she shows leadership attributes not shown by offenders.

He said he has handfuls of letters, all with the same message: “That she made a grave mistake, but since she’s been incarcerated, she’s done exceptionally well.”

Judge Walkley said she was glad Blose is doing well and she’s working hard.

“Perhaps that is the best place for her, because outside of there, she will not follow the rules,” she said, adding that if Blose was left to her own devices, she will do what she wants to do.

Before Walkley announced she was going to uphold her original sentence, the district attorney’s office asked that she remember Blose had raped a 13-year-old boy repeatedly for a little more than a year.

The prosecuting attorney also said that with the original sentence, it would make sure that Blose’s son was around the age of 18 by the time she would get out of jail; therefore, his friends wouldn’t be around the age of children that she had an “inappropriate addiction” to.
