Jacqueline Bryce Herron, a 36-year-old school therapist has been accused of drugging and seducing two underage boys – and there could be more.
According to Daily Star UK, Jacqueline Bryce Herron has been charged with 28 counts of s*x with teenage boys – including sodomy.
The brunette was working as a counsellor to high school students in Red Bluff, in California, when the offences allegedly took place.
At least some of the s*x allegedly happened in public in her car.
Herron has denied the charges, which include oral s*x, intercourse and "penetration with a foreign object” – all with minors.
They said the first alleged sexual encounter was with a boy she met while working for Victor Youth Services at a group home on King’s Way near Shasta Lake.
According to a Shasta County sheriff’s investigative report, he told a sheriff’s detective that in July 2015, he and Herron had oral sex at least once at the group home where the boy was living.
They also had sex that month in her vehicle while they were parked alongside Abernathy Lane in Redding, the report says.
Going in to graphic detail, the report says: "The victim told me he had oral sex with Jacqueline Herron in the past approximately five times and penis and vagina s*x two times in the past.”
That police report details some of her employment details, claiming she had been fired by Victor Youth Services, and later hired by Alternatives to Violence, contracted to provide counselling services to students in Red Bluff.
It is alleged that is when she began working with the second boy as a counsellor while he was a student at Salisbury High School, a continuation school in the Red Bluff High School District.
A Redding Police Department report claims he reported to police that he had sex with Herron numerous times in March and April 2016, according to police reports.
He told detectives he and Herron apparently had sex at her apartment. They would also rent motel rooms to have sex, he reportedly told police.
Employees at one motel reported to police that because of their age difference they were suspicious when they saw the two together.
The victim reported that Herron gave him alcohol, prescription cough syrup and at least one other drug.
The boy also reported to police that one time she sodomised him at her apartment while he was “blackout drunk”.
Police say they have seized photos, videos and phone texts the pair shared over a period of several weeks.
In one text, Herron allegedly sent to the boy reads: "I go to the cottonwood apt tonight the one out in the middle of nowhere haha.
"If ur not busy we should try to meet for a 7-minute hug. [sic]”
When the lad's father heard about what was happening, the relationship ended, say police.
Herron was then fired from her job at Alternatives to Violence in April 2016 after the company received a phone call from a Redding lawyer representing the alleged victim’s family in a civil lawsuit.
