Alexis Anne Colson, Wife Of Former Navy SEAL, Accused Of Sex With Teen

The wife of an intelligence officer and former Navy SEAL is accused of seducing and having sex with a 16-year-old boy.

Alexis Anne Colson, of Land O'Lakes, Fla., allegedly sent the teen a message on Jan. 22 instructing him where to meet her, according to a Pasco County sheriff's report obtained by the Tampa Bay Times. The report states the two then drove to a second location to have sex.

Investigators say the boy's tablet contained "at least 15 explicit pictures" of Colson, and that he possessed a pair of black lacy underwear he told them belonged to the woman.

According to the sheriff's report, law enforcement became aware of the alleged relationship after someone who had loaned the boy a phone saw suspicious text messages. The boy then allegedly admitted to the relationship, Land O'Lakes Patch reported.

Alexis Anne Colson is married to Tim Colson, whose LinkedIn profile stated he is an executive officer with the United States AFrica Command, according to the Daily Mail. The LinkedIn profile has since been removed. The couple reportedly has three young children together.

Colson was arrested Tuesday on charges of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and with sending harmful electronic transmissions to a minor. She was later released on $15,000 bail.
