Police have arrested 32-year-old Destiny Witte and charged her with one count of Lewd Battery on a Child Under 16, and two counts of Lewd Conduct with a Child Under 16.
Lakeland police officials said the investigation started after the teen's parents contacted police.
They added that Witte and the teen had known each other for about a week, after being introduced in a social situation.
In the arrest report, witnesses state that Witte wore "provocative" clothes, and describe her hugging the teen in a "passionate" manner.
In another statement, a witness saw Witte kiss the teen on the lips.
The report states that the teen did admit to having sex with Witte and had "feelings" for her.
Witte was arrested Wednesday at a home along East Walnut Street, which is believed to be her mother's.
Police said Witte admitted to the incident in the park.
A long-time friend of Witte told 10 News that Witte has mental issues and "hasn't been acting right for weeks."
She said Witte went through a divorce earlier this year and does have a boyfriend.
Police said Witte was supposed to be getting married in two weeks.
