MANSFIELD – A 33-year-old Fort Worth woman was arrested Thursday for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old Boy Scout, police said, and there may be more than one victim.

Courtney Leynn Sheward was still in the Mansfield Jail Friday morning in lieu of $25,000 bail.

She is charged with sexual assault of a child. Police say Sheward’s son was in the same Scout troop as the victim.

Sheward was a committee member for a Scout troop who handled things like book-keeping and fundraising, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Sheward’s Scout membership was revoked on Monday, according to the paper.

State records show that Sheward holds a Registered Nurse’s license.

The arrest happened after the boy’s parents filed a complaint about the woman.

Fort Worth police say they’re investigating reports of a possible second victim, and they’re wondering if there may be more.
