A 44-year-old Florida woman is accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy after crashing a child’s birthday party in Port Charlotte.
The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that it had arrested Jessica Rae Good, on two counts of Child Abuse and two counts of Unlawful Sexual Activity with a Minor. Good was arrested on May 11 after raping a 17-year-old boy on May 9.
The victim told investigators that they were attending a sleepover birthday party when Jessica Good and another woman crashed it around 2 am. Good was allegedly drunk and the teen victim claimed she was “making extremely inappropriate sexual comments and providing the 17-year-old victim with alcohol,” according to investigators.
Moreover, the boy would allegedly become Good’s rape victim after she purportedly got the teen drunk. Making matters worse, a 12-year-old girl was “asleep” on a bean bag chair just a foot from Good and her 17-year-old victim as the rape occurred.
A 12-year-old girl at the party told deputies she had fallen asleep on a bean bag, only to be awoken by the sounds of two people having sex just a foot away from her on a loveseat.
At one point, the teen got up to use the bathroom and vomited, the 12-year-old girl told investigators. When he returned to the room, the sheriff’s office said the sexual activity resumed.
According to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Port Charlotte Sun, the girl said the 17-year-old boy whispered to her to help him.
Detectives approached Good at her workplace on May 11th and asked to speak to her. That conversation led to her arrest. She has been charged with two counts of child abuse and two counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
The sheriff’s department noted that “in Florida, it is illegal for an adult (someone 18 or older) to have sex with a minor (someone younger than 18), even if the sex is consensual (certain exemptions exist).”
Good has been booked on a $150K bond. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer.
It’s not clear what Good’s relationship is to the child or how she knows them.

Perhaps more disturbing than her alleged crime, however, are some of the reactions on social media, where many have asked why the boy returned to the couch after going to the bathroom and vomiting. For any readers having such a thought, let me remind you that this was allegedly a highly intoxicated child, who was apparently drunk enough to become physically ill.
It does not matter what this boy did or didn’t do. The bottom line is that Jessica Rae Good is an adult. Her victim was not. And, she plied him with alcohol, which is also criminal. Then, without any regard for her victim or the 12-year-old witness who was in arm’s reach, this woman raped the boy.
You can’t call it anything else when neither a child nor an intoxicated person — of which the victim was both — is preyed upon by an adult. To do so is excusing a very serious crime. If the accusations are true, this woman is a monster, and society needs to call out that evil, not make excuses for it.
