Deputies say a woman from Pasco County who appeared on a nationally syndicated television program admitted on the show to having sex with a fifteen-year-old boy.
Titled Lantry vs. Lantry, "Divorce Court's" Sept. 11th episode, shows Lynn Toler, the show's judge, mediating marital problems between Shadow and Joseph Lantry.
"You are concerned that not only did she cheat, but that she cheated with somebody in your family?" asked the judge.
"Yes ma'am," responded Joseph Lantry.
A fifteen-year-old had told the Pasco Sheriff's Office in August of last year that he'd been having sex with 26-year-old Shadow Lantry for months.
That teen is allegedly a relative on Joseph Lantry's side of the family.
During the program, deputies say she admitted to the affair.
"Mrs. Lantry, do you believe that this other family member might be the father of the baby?" asked Toler.
"There is a small possibility," she responded.
Shadow Lantry was arrested in the year-old case nine days after the episode aired.
"She got her fifteen minutes of fame on TV, and it is probably going to cost her fifteen years of her life in prison," said Anthony Rickman, a defense attorney and former prosecutor not affiliate with the case.
Joseph Lantry spoke to Fox 13 on Friday, saying the show was dramatized and that what she said shouldn't be taken word for word.
He says she doesn't deserve to be taken away from her children and hopes she is found not guilty.
He says it's still unknown as to who the father is, though divorce court is sure of one thing:
"There is absolutely zero percent chance that you are the father of that baby," said the Judge, reading the results of a DNA test.
Deputies say she admitted the affair to them but refused a DNA test of her child, denying the teen is the father.
She faces fifteen years for each count of lewd and lascivious battery.
Divorce court "ordered" the Lantry's to try to resolve their differences, which they are attempting to do.
