Heather Bard, a 33-year-old Castleberry, Florida, woman, was arrested on Tuesday, October 31 and accused of having sex with her friend’s 16-year-old son.
Bard of was arrested after the boy’s father found Facebook messages between his son and Bard. The messages discussed an event where they drank alcohol and engaged in sexual activity.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, upon seeing the messages, the boy’s father called his ex-wife, who was there the night the incident occurred. While the mother acknowledged that Bard and her son were “drinking and touchy with each other”, she asked him not to call the police.
On October 17, the father contacted the police, who opened an investigation. After the investigation, Bard was arrested on charges of sexual battery on a victim of 16 or 17 years old and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Bard was arrested and transported to the Seminole County jail and held on a $15,500 bond. The state attorney’s office is considering whether the boy’s mother should also be charged in the case.
