Pasco Mom Accused in 13-Year-Old Daughter's Sexual Abuse


NEW PORT RICHEY -- A 34-year-old employee with the Florida Department of Children and Families is behind bars in Pasco County, accused of having sex with her own 13-year-old daughter.

The Pasco Sheriff's Office says Sarah Frances Adams and her husband, Thomas--the victim's stepfather--both had sex with the girl in incidents dating back to 2019, and deputies say Sarah Adams was aware of her husband's sexual activity, and failed to report it.

According to an arrest affidavit, Sarah Adams "enticed" her daughter to have sex with the stepfather.

Thomas Adams didn't want his wife to "get in trouble" for his involvement. He already faces multiple counts of sexual battery.
