MISHAWAKA, Indiana — A 26-year-old Mishawaka woman accused of having sex with four boys has been charged with child molesting and three counts of sexual misconduct with a minor.

Between Sept. 27 and 29, Sara Smith (pictured left) allegedly had sex with boys ages 14, 14 and 15 and one under the age of 14, according to a probable cause affidavit. Police are determining if additional boys also were involved.

A report made to the Mishawaka Police Department Oct. 14 indicated that several juvenile boys were spending an “unusual amount of time at the residence of Smith,” according to charging documents.

In particular, one boy came into contact with police at the Mishawaka Police Department and appeared to be under the influence of some type of illegal substance, police said. The boy reportedly told police he had been at the house with Smith that day with other individuals and that Smith supplied them with alcohol and marijuana.

When officers asked about the incident and went to Smith’s home, they found three other boys there, according to court records.

Police also said they determined the three juveniles were under the influence of alcohol.

A separate report coming into police Oct. 13 reported that a boy was missing and that Smith’s address was a possible place to find him.

Some of the boys later admitted during interviews at the CASIE Center in South Bend that they had sex with Smith, authorities say. One boy told authorities he had sex with Smith with several of the other boys present.

Both boys who were interviewed reportedly said Smith encouraged multiple boys to be involved. Police are still determining the identities of those boys.

Smith was arraigned Monday before Judge Jerome Frese, entered a preliminary plea of not guilty and said she planned to hire an attorney. She is still in custody on a $5,000 cash bond.

Smith has been ordered to have no contact with the boys involved.

Child molesting is a Class A felony; sexual misconduct with a minor is a Class B felony.
