SARASOTA, Fla. - A 42-year-old Bradenton woman has been arrested after witnesses told authorities that she had sex with two minors over spring break while others watched.

Sarasota County Sheriff's detectives arrested 42-year-old Jeanine Shimandle Friday.  She is facing four counts of Lewd and Lascivious Exhibition and two counts of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor after detectives learned that she had sex with 13 and 17-year-old boys on March 11 at a Sarasota home where she was house sitting.

According to the arrest affidavit, Shimandle was staying in a Sarasota apartment for several days to watch the resident's dog.  The resident's three children were staying with other relatives and friends and were instructed to not be in the home.

The resident's 14-year-old daughter told investigators that Shimandle offered to come pick her up to hang out at the apartment.  She says Shimandle picked her up, along with her 13-year-old female friend and a 15-year-old male friend.  Along the way they picked up two other boys, a 13-year-old and a 17-year-old.

Investigators say Shimandle made one more stop, at Total Wine to pick up two bottles of vodka -- "cookie dough" and "cake" flavored.

Interviews with the teens later revealed that Shimandle engaged in several sex sessions with different teens, often with other teens watching.

The investigation is continuing.
