(CBS) WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. - Police say a 43-year-old woman admitted having a sexual relationship with her daughter's teen friend for about four months, according to CBS affiliate WKMG.

According to Florida Today, police records indicate Jennifer Galle Clevenger started a relationship with the teen in December 2012. The paper reports the woman was aware that the boy was either 14 or 15-years-old.

Clevenger reportedly described to authorities how they engaged in sexual acts in several occasions.

The station reports that police contacted the boy after Clevenger's daughter found out about the relationship. He said "it" ended in April. The boy didn't specify if the relationship was sexual at first.

According to the station, investigators met with the boy in early June and the boy described the various sexual encounters. The teen reportedly said Clevenger bought him alcohol about nine times and gave him a bong, knowing he smokes marijuana.

Police say the encounters took place in the woman's vehicle and at several friend's houses in the neighborhood, reports the station.

Clevenger was arrested on Monday and faces five felony charges of lewd and lascivious battery in addition to nine misdemeanor charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to WKMG.

Clevenger could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted on a second-degree charge, report says.
