A Kissimmee man accused of sexually battering a child has been arrested, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.
The man was arrested June 15 and charged with three counts of capital sexual battery.
Deputies began their investigation into the man in April after receiving information about alleged sexual abuse.
The 13-year-old alleged victim told investigators that the man sexually battered and inappropriately touched her several times when she was between 9 and 12 years old.
A felony warrant was issued for the man’s arrest. He was located at a home in the 700 block of Hacienda Circle in Kissimmee.
The man was booked into the Osceola County Jail without bond.
Accusations of sexual battery can ruin your reputation even if your name is eventually cleared from any wrongdoing. Sadly, these cases usually rely on one person’s word against the other – the alleged victim vs. the accused. The prosecution will cling to any shred of evidence they have against the accused and fight aggressively to obtain a conviction. That is why you must take these charges seriously and make sure your rights are protected from the start of your case to its finish.
