HUDSON — A 26-year-old woman has been charged with three counts of lewd and lascivious battery after a 15-year-old boy told deputies he could be father of her newborn child, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

The boy, who has not been named, told deputies the two had sex a number of times at three places in Pasco County from February to August 2017. The woman, Shadow Lantry, was arrested Thursday and was being held at the Land O' Lakes jail on a $30,000 bond.

Deputies said Lantry and her husband appeared on the TV show Divorce Court on Sept. 11, where she admitted to having sexual relations during the past two years with a relative of her husband's on a number of occasions and with an ex-boyfriend and another woman.

"I've been known to do some pretty outlandish things when I'm upset," Lantry said on the show. "I have always used sex as an escape for pain and anger."

Divorce Court reported that a DNA test it had done shows there is a zero percent chance her husband is the father of Lantry's newborn child. At that point in the show, Lantry broke into tears.

Deputies say Lantry denies the 15-year-old boy is the child's father but she refused a DNA test.
