'Held hostage' for sex

Daily Telegraph
Monday, March 10, 2014

A WOMAN accused of holding two men hostage and demanding sex from one of them could avoid jail time if she behaves herself for nine months.

Terry Boyd, 52, appeared in a US county court last week on charges of false imprisonment, obstructing an officer, disorderly conduct and bail jumping for holding the men against their will in two separate incidents, the Stevens Point Journal reports.

The woman entered no contest pleas to three counts of disorderly conduct, while all other charges were dismissed as a result of a plea agreement, according to the newspaper.

Judge Mike Moran ordered the case to be deferred for nine months to allow Ms Boyd to undergo counselling.

The saga began at Ms Boyd's Wisconsin home in the early hours of August 12, when police responded to a call from neighbours reporting a loud argument and a man screaming for help.

Officers said they forced their way into the house and found two men, one of whom was Ms Boyd's housemate, locked in a room.

The men, who asked not to press charges, told the cops Ms Boyd had refused to let them go until one of them had sex with her.

Afterwards, Ms Boyd called a local hospital to report that police had "beaten her up". But when she was rushed there in an ambulance, she allegedly became combative with hospital workers.

Ms Boyd was returned home hours later, only to barricade her housemate in a bedroom again, according to court documents.

Police came back that evening, arrested Ms Boyd and took her to jail.
