St. Albans, VT – Misty Smith, 34, is being held on $1 million bail for allegedly drugging, kidnapping and sexually assaulting three of her 11-year-old son’s friends. Smith was arrested on Wednesday after one of the alleged victims was reported missing by his parents. The 11-year-old boy was seen heading to Smith’s home after school Tuesday afternoon, and when he failed to show up at home, his parents and police canvassed the neighborhood. The boy’s parents visited Smith’s home and asked her three separate times if she had seen the boy – each time, Smith denied having any knowledge of his whereabouts. When an officer questioned Smith about the missing boy that evening, she played stupid once again. Hearing noises coming from an upstairs bedroom, the officer asked if he could take a look. In the bedroom, he found the missing boy and two other 11-year-old boys.
During an interview with the boys, detectives learned they routinely visited Smith’s home after school and were given cigarettes, marijuana, alcohol, pills that “made them hyper” and cocaine. They also told police they had been repeatedly sexually assaulted by Smith for more than a month – apparently while her husband was elsewhere in the home and oblivious(?) to her nasty perversions. According to police, on Tuesday, Smith pulled down the pants of two of the boys and duct-taped their hands behind their backs so she could perform a sex act on them. She then reportedly locked them in the room and threatened to hurt them if they told. While officers were interviewing the boys and their parents, Smith tried to take the easy way out by swallowing a handful of pills…she failed.
She was treated at the hospital and arrested upon release. Smith later admitted to touching one of the boys inappropriately, but said they had initiated sexual contact. In addition to the sexual-assault accusations, Smith faces charges of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child, unlawful restraint, simple-assault, delivering drugs to a minor and furnishing alcohol to a minor. Smith’s previous convictions include aggravated domestic assault for breaking her toddler son’s leg in 2003 and leaving the scene of an accident in 2004.Tags: alcohol, assault and battery, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Drugs, Kidnapping, Sexual Assault, St. Albans, Vermont
