A sleepover at a Bucks County home turned into a sex party between a 38-year-old woman and five boys as young as 14, Lower Makefield Township police said. Police Chief Ken Coluzzi said that the woman, identified as Angela Honeycutt, had sex with a 15-year-old boy in a bathroom. Afterward, she took a 14-year-old boy into the shower where she masturbated him and allowed him to penetrate her with his finger. Coluzzi said that the "sleepover" took place April 14 at the home of Lynne Long, 45, whose son invited the five other boys but was not present when the incidents took place.

Q:I've always allowed my kids' friends to stay over. That's just the way I was raised. My parents let me and my sisters have sleepovers for our birthdays.

She wants her girlfriend, who's a college freshman, to stay over after her prom because they plan on going to the beach the next day. It will save her a trip.

She was supposed to have chaperoned a teen party at a neighborhood friend's house. Instead, suburban mother Angela Honeycutt wound up drunk, naked, and in the shower with two of the ninth-grade boys she was supposed to be supervising. For that, Honeycutt was sentenced yesterday in Bucks County Court to at least 11 1/2 months in the county prison. "I lost total control of a serious situation . . .," a sobbing Honeycutt told Judge John J. Rufe. "I have been paying every day for my lack of judgment that horrible night.

WILDWOOD - Maybe you've had one of those evenings on the boardwalk when the rides have tired you out so much you just want to lie down right there and have a snooze beneath the glimmering lights and speeding roller coasters. Well now you can, because on Oct. 4, Morey's Piers will host a first-ever outdoor sleepover on the pier. It's called the "Boardwalk Bunk-Down," and beginning at noon that day, campers can bring tents, sleeping bags, and other supplies to Morey's Adventure Pier and set up camp.

A 13-year-old girl who was unintentionally shot in the chest early Sunday was attending a supervised girls' sleepover, according to her mother. Linda Moye said that her daughter was one of four girls in their North Philadelphia neighborhood who rotated houses for teen sleepovers. It had been earlier reported that the shooting occurred at a house party, raising the question of why the girls were out so late. After this weekend's shooting Moye said that she wishes that she'd never let her daughter attend.

Kristen Lynn Hocker, 15, of Glenolden, and Sandra Lee Boyer, 13, from Springfield, were the best of friends, brought together by their years in classes for the physically disabled. Although the two were inseparable, they had never had a sleepover until Saturday night, at Kristen's house here. That night, the girls died in a house fire that also killed Edward L. Hocker Jr., 17, Kristen's brother and a senior at Interboro High School. When an emergency crew arrived about 1:45 a.m. Sunday, responding to a call from Kristen, they found the two-story, single-family dwelling in flames.

As the hours passed last night with no sign of a 6-year-old Philadelphia girl who disappeared yesterday morning from a sleepover at a Kensington rowhouse, initially optimistic detectives began to think the worst. "I'm worried she could be dead," one veteran investigator said. "She's been gone an awfully long time. " Destiny Wright was last seen going to sleep in a second-floor bedroom with a half-dozen other children in a rowhouse in the 800 block of East Westmoreland Street.

Police arrested a 17-year-old girl after she allegedly threatened to "shoot up" schools in two Delaware County districts in an Instagram post. "All blacks must die!" the post said, mentioning the Chester Upland School District, Chester Community Charter School and Chichester High School as targets. The threat was posted at 7 p.m. Tuesday and police tracked it to a home where the girl, a Chester High School student, was visiting for a sleepover. The student, whose name has not been released, has been charged with terroristic threats and unlawful use of a computer, said Emily Harris, a spokeswoman for the Delaware County District Attorney's office.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 10 years. Four years ago, while waiting for our divorce to be finalized, I decided I'd start dating online and suggested she do the same. We were still friends, so I didn't think it was crossing any boundaries. My online dating efforts were met with peculiar results. All of the six women I connected with either stood me up or made excuses why they couldn't or wouldn't meet me in person. Out of frustration I began dating my wife again and we canceled the divorce proceedings.

A viewing and Funeral Mass are scheduled for Saturday morning for the 14-year-old soccer player who died at a team sleepover in Sewell over the weekend. By Monday afternoon, donors had raised more than $30,000 for the family of Kara Lemanowicz, a freshman at Eastern Regional High School in Voorhees Township, where classes start Tuesday. "It really just shows how much support there is in our community," said Jamie McGroarty, the high school's soccer coach. He said he and his wife had coached Lemanowicz since she was about 6 years old. Lemanowicz was in a tent Saturday morning at a sleepover with the Eastern girls' soccer team when friends tried to wake her and could not. Paramedics arrived but pronounced Lemanowicz dead, authorities said.

Maybe you noticed all those kids entering the museum while you were on your way out, or perhaps got firsthand experience schlepping and sleeping there with your own son's Boy Scout group. Indeed, pitching makeshift campsites beside a mythical Sphinx, a limp-armed T. rex , or a pulsating heart has been popular for the last 10 years, especially since the Night at the Museum film franchise widened appeal. (The third will be released in December.) But it's almost always been a thing just for kids - until now. In response to adults clamoring for a turn to pack their own toothbrushes, don eye masks, and catch some Z's, museum directors in local landmarks looking for more exposure are holding adult sleepovers, a trend that seems to be gaining ground.

Already, the 10 tween girls have devoured spaghetti tacos, made Lifesaver bracelets, changed into pajamas, and played several giggle-infused rounds of limbo. Next up on this Friday night in Elkins Park is a serious game of human mop - one girl drags another across the floor, which, the girls swear, is more fun than it sounds. The controlled chaos looks like any other sleepover. But as 10:30 p.m. approaches, the living room at the hosting Gormans' becomes increasingly crowded - with parents.

DEAR ABBY: My 12-year-old daughter, "Mandy," was invited to a friend's birthday party along with 12 other girls. They were told to meet at the mall where they'd "go shopping" together, then go for a sleepover afterward. The birthday girl told her friends to bring money as gifts. Well, she raked in more than $300 then proceeded to spend it all on herself while her friends stood and watched. Mandy returned home the next day and told me that although the girl spent the money on herself, her mom did buy them each a beverage.

IT COMES down to one question, really: Can Occupy Philly carry on, if it has to stick to business hours? That's what members of the movement were left to consider last night after the city revealed terms of a potential no-sleepovers-allowed permit for protesters who have called Dilworth Plaza home for the past month. The permit, which would last until Dec. 20, would let Occupy Philly demonstrate on Thomas Paine Plaza, outside the Municipal Services Building, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
