Chandler detectives have served a search warrant to get handwriting samples from Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock, whose wife and daughter face sex charges involving the same teenage boy.

Police did not reveal the reason for the sample, and a court has sealed the warrant. The action comes days before Susan Brock, 49, will be sentenced to seven to 15 years in prison and lifetime probation after pleading guilty to having sex with a boy when he was 14 and she was 45.

Susan Brock began the three-year relationship after her daughter Rachel Brock, 21, began having sexual encounters, according to police. Rachel Brock has been indicted by a grand jury on five sexually related counts of sexual conduct with a minor and furnishing harmful materials to a minor.

Court records show Rachel Brock sent nude photos of herself and an explicit video to the boy’s cell phone. The trysts occurred when she was 18 and the boy was 13.

The boy attended the same Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints as the Brocks. Documents show Susan Brock initially denied any wrongdoing during a meeting with a church official, but that Fulton Brock took an iPhone his wife gave the boy and put it in a lockbox. The phone allegedly had sexual content Susan sent the boy, and officers later obtained the phone through a search warrant to examine its contents.

Brock released the following statement Monday through a publicist:

“I am surprised by these new requests and questions. It is not conceivable that any decent human being could somehow conspire or condone such acts, if they knew them to be occurring. I most certainly did not.  My family has been torn apart. Another family has been terribly harmed. My wife lied to me. She is sick and will be sentenced this week. I am in the final stages of divorce. I have cooperated with law enforcement and will of course continue to do so. In turn, I hope they will conduct themselves with the utmost professionalism.”
