Teen Who Set Rare Tortoise on Fire Now Faces Underage Sex Charges

Florida teen Jennifer Greene announced her candidacy for Worst Human of 2014 last month when she and a friend set a protected gopher tortoise on fire repeatedly, stomped it to death, and posted the video on Facebook. Now she may have established herself as the frontrunner: The 18-year-old is now facing charges for allegedly being sexually involved with an underage boy.

The boy, whose age hasn't been made public, told investigators Greene engaged in multiple sex acts with him. According to an arrest report obtained by Fox 30, their relationship started when the two were playing hide and seek behind an Orange Park, Fla. home.

The boy told police he initiated things by asking to see Greene's boobs, and she "then consented to perform various sexual acts, including oral sex," Fox 30 reported.

Because Greene was only 17 at the time, multiple sources originally reported she would be charged as a juvenile for lewd or lascivious battery—defined in Florida as engaging in sexual activity with a child older than 12 and younger than 16.

The Florida state's attorney's office now plans to prosecute her in adult court. She faces up to 15 years in prison, in addition to the five years she already faced for animal cruelty.
