A 26-year-old St. Petersburg woman was arrested Thursday after investigators said she was having sex with a boy younger than 16.

Lauralee M. Beckham, of 6418 Haines Road, Apt. 46, faces charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a child younger than 16.

Pinellas County sheriff's deputies were called to the boy's residence Wednesday night by his father. According to investigators, Beckham had been having consensual sex with the boy for the past two weeks at her home.

Deputies do not believe there are other victims, the sheriff's office said.

The case is still under investigation.

Beckham was taken to the Pinellas County Jail with bail set at $10,000.

The sheriff's office said Beckham was unemployed, but on her Facebook page she lists her occupation as a dancer at Baby Dolls, an adult lounge in Clearwater.

In July 2010, Beckham served 14 months in state prison for forgery and possession of controlled substances, according to the Department of Corrections website. She was released in May 2011.
