A Florida man is facing sex crimes charges after he was accused of a molesting a Flagler County teenager in January.
Flagler County deputies were apparently contacted Jan. 4 about a sex offense in Palm Coast. They investigated and claim the man allegedly molested a child between 12-18 years old.
After the allegations were reported to authorities, the accused left the area and had been living in Cape Coral until he was arrested earlier this month on charges of sexual battery and lewd/lascivious molestation.
He was returned to Flagler County and is being held on $150,000 bond.
