A 37-year-old Florida woman who was arrested for unlawful sex with a minor has allegedly admitted to investigators she did have relations with a teenage boy, but said it was because he "expressed interest" in her.
Deputies in Marion County, Fla., arrested Stacy Lynn DeLong on Thursday after they confronted her with evidence demonstrating that she had had sex with a 16-year-old boy.
"The Sheriff’s Office got a tip concerning DeLong having had inappropriate contact with a child. Detectives interviewed Delong and she told detectives the sex took place June 23, 2013. Delong told detectives she had sex with the child because 'he expressed interest in her,'" states a release by the Marion County Sheriff's Dept.
The teenage boy who allegedly had sex with DeLong was also brought to the station for questioning where he admitted having sex with the suspect, Ocala.com reported.
It is unknown how the two knew each other prior to the sexual encounter.
DeLong is currently being held in the Marion County Jail on a $10,000 bond, and anyone with information about her is asked to call (352) 368-3539, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
DeLong's Facebook profile lists her current occupation as "It's a Secret" and features a picture poster that reads, "Before you judge how I live my life, I suggest you take a good look at your own," the Daily Mail reported.
