A Summerfield realtor was arrested Thursday after a nearly month-long investigation into claims that she was involved in sexual acts with three male juvenile brothers from 2010-2016.
Heather Ann Reyes, 40, of Belleview, was taken into custody and booked into the Marion County Jail on Thursday night on two counts of sexual battery (familial custody) and two counts of lewd or lascivious behavior. Reyes works for First American International, located
The investigation started July 14 when a Marion County sheriff’s deputy received a call from a woman claiming her sons were involved in sexual incidents with Reyes when they were between the ages of 12 and 17. The woman said her sons are now 19, 21 and 24 years old.
The deputy spoke with one of the sons who said he was 12 or 13 when the incidents occurred. He claimed Reyes, who apparently lived with the boys’ father at the time, touched him over his clothing for five years, which evolved into sexual intercourse until he moved from the residence at age 17, a sheriff’s office report states.
The 19-year-old said his first sexual incident with Reyes occurred when he was 12 or 13. He said that Reyes grabbed his hand and placed it on her body and then touched him “over and then under his clothing.” He said he “freaked out” and left the room, the report states.
One of the alleged victims said when he was 14 or 15, Reyes would “touch him sexually” while driving a vehicle and he would touch her “over and under her clothing.” He said that Reyes would say, “Do you like it?” and “Are you enjoying it?” after the sexual acts.
An alleged victim also told the deputy that when he was 16, he and Reyes had intercourse near a shed in their backyard.
An interview with the boys’ father is heavily redacted in the sheriff’s office report, but it says when his children were in school, he would come home some nights late from work to “find Heather intoxicated.” He also recalled the door to the boys’ rooms sometimes being locked and “eventually Heather would exit the room.” The father recalled them having “an overall good relationship” with Reyes, though the report notes that one would “sometimes have problems” with her.
The deputy initially spoke with Reyes on an audio-recorded, controlled phone call but was notified Thursday by her attorney that she did not wish to provide a statement. Reyes was arrested that night and released Saturday morning shortly after midnight on $6,000 bond.
