According to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, Jaimie Ayer had sex with boys, ages 16 and 17, at her home on Dec. 23. Detectives have identified three other potential victims and said additional charges are pending.
Ayer has been charged with three counts of unlawful sexual activity of certain minors.
The sheriff's office began investigating after receiving a tip regarding Ayer giving alcohol to and engaging in sexual acts with juveniles.
Deputies said Ayer's child had a party at the home during the first day of holiday break. According to the affidavit, when Ayer arrived at the home, she provided alcohol to the minors and later told a boy she needed help in the shower.
Deputies said she then had sex with the 16 and 17 year-olds.
According to officials, at least one witness walked into the room and saw Ayer and the teenagers.
An investigation into the incident began this week when Ayer's child told others she was being bullied at school about the incident.
Deputies said Ayer was highly intoxicated when arrested at her residence on Wednesday.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with any further information is asked to call the MCSO at 941-747-3011 or Crime Stoppers at 866-634-TIPS.
