Pasco deputies say woman, 37, seduced teen

LAND O'LAKES — A 37-year-old woman has been arrested on charges of luring a 16-year-old boy into a sexual encounter.

Alexis Anne Colson, of Land O'Lakes, sent the boy instructions on where to meet on Jan. 22, then she drove him to another location in Hudson where they had sex, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

Detectives found the instructions on the teen's tablet, as well as "at least 15 explicit pictures" of Colson. The boy told detectives that Colson sent him the pictures. He also had a pair of black lace underwear he said were hers.

Authorities did not say how Colson met the boy. She is married to Tim Colson, and the couple's Facebook page indicates they have children. Her LinkedIn profile states Alexis Colson is a fitness instructor who worked as a certified nursing assistant before moving to Florida in 2011.

Colson was arrested Tuesday on charges of unlawful sex with a minor and electronic transfer of materials harmful to a minor. She was released from the Land O'Lakes jail on $15,000 bail. A phone call to her home was not answered.

  2. Irma roughs up endangered snail kites, birds that help us gauge the Everglades' health

    Wildlife

    Hurricane Irma was as rough on some wildlife as it was on the humans. Audubon of Florida reported Thursday that the storm destroyed all 44 nests around Lake Okeechobee built by the endangered Everglades snail kite, a bird considered crucial to the River of Grass ecosystem.

    Hurricane Irma destroyed 44 snail kite nests, capping off a poor mating season for the endangered species, which is seen as an important barometer of the health of the Florida Everglades. Their off-center beaks allow them to probe inside the spiral shells of the native apple snails. But the snails' population has dropped as the Everglades has changed. [MAC STONE | Audubon of Florida]
