A Liberty County woman admitted to having sex with seven teenage boys younger than 16, according to the Liberty County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded at about 2:42 p.m. Dec. 5 to a report of a possible burglary at 99 Retriever Way because a teen was in the back yard, according to a Liberty County detective's report.

The Liberty County detective saw other police units there. A Walthourville officer at the scene told the detective that the Jenica Smith knew Thomas, and everything was fine, according to the report.

The detective said in the report he thought it was odd that Smith was talking with the teen through a bathroom window if they knew each other. Smith told the detective that she had just gotten out of the shower, saw the teen at her window and that he had done this before.

Thomas told the detective that Smith asked her to stand at the window and watch her in the shower. The teen said he had sex with Smith and gave him the names of several other 13- and 14-year-olds who had sex with her.

Smith was arrested booked into the Liberty County Jail on Dec. 5. She was denied bond and remains in the jail.

She's charged with four counts of aggravated child molestation, three counts of statutory rape. The  charges are only for five of the victims. Other charges are pending for two other victims.

The investigation continues. Some teen victims have yet to be interviewed.
