Central Fla. woman gets teens drunk, has sex with them
(WKMG CLICK 6) LEESBURG, Fla. – A 36-year-old Lake County woman was arrested on allegations of having sex with two boys on separate occasions after giving them some form of “intoxicating drink.”
Barbara Kirby, of Leesburg, was arrested Tuesday on charges of lewd or lascivious battery on a victim older than 12 and younger than 16 and tampering with a victim.
According to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, officers with the Leesburg Police Department met with two boys and their parents in late December about the sex allegations.
One of the boys told authorities that he visited Kirby’s Leesburg home around December 11 and she gave him something to drink. The boy said he felt light-headed and dizzy and fell asleep after finishing the drink, according to a sheriff’s report.
The boy said he awakened and was naked on the living room sofa, according to officials. The boy told authorities that Kirby then undressed and said, “Age is just a number,” before having sex with him, the report stated.
The boy said he felt embarrassed and returned home after quickly getting dressed, sheriff’s officials stated.
Kirby saw the boy two days later, according to deputies, and threatened to kill him if he told anyone what happened.
Deputies said the boys’ accounts were similar to each other.
According to the sheriff’s report, Kirby admitted to having sex with one of the boys but invoked her right not to answer questions about the other case.
Kirby was later arrested and taken to jail.
