Ohio social worker accused of having sex with 13-year-old client, faces witness intimidation charges


A 24-year-old Ohio social worker accused of having sex with a 13-year-old boy in her care now faces additional charges for allegedly trying to intimidate the boy’s family.

Columbus, Ohio, ABC station WSYX reported that Payton Shires appeared before a judge last week and became emotional when the charges were read to her.

Court records show an arrest warrant was issued for Shires on Oct. 26. And she was arraigned on October 28 for intimidation of a witness by force or threat.

During the hearing, prosecutors said Shires showed up at the 13-year-old boy’s home with a gun.

There, she threatened to commit suicide, the channel reported, accusing the family of “ruining her life.”

On Oct. 6, Payton was arrested without incident and admitted to having sex during a three-way conversation between Shires, the boy’s mother and police, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

Shires was previously employed by the National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP), which provides counseling, social work and advocacy to families involved in the foster care system, the report states. It is unclear when she stopped working for the organization.

The boy’s mother called police on September 27 after finding suspicious text messages on the 13-year-old’s mobile phone from Shires.

She was charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and held on $500,000 bail.
