Woman accused of sex with teens

Posted: Updated:
SARASOTA (FOX 13) -

Tom Shimandle is the husband of three and half years to 42-year-old Jeanine Shimandle. She's in jail, accused of having sex with at least two boys: one 13, the other 17. We talked to her husband as he arrived home.

"I'm confused I have no idea what's going on. I'm shocked and I'm saddened. You think you know somebody," he said.

Deputies say it all happened March 12th during Spring Break. She was house sitting for a friend at an apartment in Sarasota.

Deputies say she texted several teens and then picked them up along with a couple bottles of flavored vodka.

Over the next several hours deputies say she had sex with the teens, at times while others listened and watched.

"I wish it never happened. It's sad. It's going to change my life forever," Tom Shimandle said.

Shimandle faces several counts of lewd and lascivious exhibition and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. But officials say that's just the beginning -- more charges are pending. I asked her husband if she apologized to him while in jail.

"No, no no she goes, get me out, I'll give you a divorce, anything you want, just get me out, I says you need to stay there and tell them the truth," he described.

As if the allegations aren't bad enough, Shimandle also reportedly said she'd put a hit out on anyone who spoke of what happened.

Her bond is set at $100,500.
