O’Connor has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges as filed by the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.
Investigators claim that O’Connor would pressure the teenagers to binge drink and have sex for her own pleasure at parties between the summer of 2020 and February 2021.
O’Connor would host the parties inside her 5,122-square-foot Los Gatos home, which was listed for sale earlier this year with a listing price of $4.7 million.

The alleged victims included male and female Los Gatos High School students, including O’Connor’s own two sons.
After luring the youngsters to her home she allegedly ‘facilitated sexual encounters’ between minors, both consensual and nonconsensual, while some victims reported that she watched as they were sexually assaulted.
The 48-year-old’s attorneys have indicated during court proceedings that they are seeking a prison term of eight years or less and may be prepared to change her plea to guilty. She could be out in as little as four years with good behavior.
‘Evidence admitted at preliminary hearing will show offenses alleged above were committed by defendant as a result of sexual compulsion and for the purpose of sexual gratification,’ Deputy District Attorney Rebekah Wise wrote.

Some parties took place at O’Connor’s mansion in Los Gatos while her husband was away, while others were organized at Airbnb locations in Lake Tahoe and Santa Cruz.
O’Connor was very selective about the girls allowed at her parties, often rejecting them if they didn’t meet her standards.
‘She would reject girls as guests by saying they weren’t ‘pretty enough’ or didn’t ‘put out,” the court documents state.
O’Connor’s husband reportedly filed for divorce earlier this year, seemingly unaware of her actions.
Upon learning of the police investigation in 2021, O’Connor fled to Idaho with her sons, where she conducted further Google searches over arrest warrants, statutes of limitations, and legal consequences.
They included searches such as: ‘can I get prosecuted in California if I live in Idaho,’ ‘how do I know if there is a warrant for my arrest,’ ‘supplying alcohol to minors in a private home,’ and ‘statute of limitations California,’ according to court documents.
By the time of her arrest in October 2021, she had 12 underage teens staying at her Idaho residence.
She also allegedly attempted to convince her 15-year-old son to not cooperate with investigators.
O’Connor’s defense is likely to argue that she believed the sexual encounters among the teenagers were consensual while prosecutors will argue that she knew exactly what she was doing.
O’Connor remains in custody at Elmwood Correctional Facility in Milpitas with her preliminary hearing scheduled for November 6.
