Clearwater man accused of molesting 6-year-old girl


Man accused of molesting 6-year-old girl

A 30-year-old Clearwater man was arrested Friday morning on charges of sexual battery on a 6-year-old girl. Authorities say Jeffrey Proctor of 1439 Jasmine Way molested the girl on several occasions at his home over the last five months. Clearwater police detectives received information that led to the arrest. Proctor knew the girl, police said. They did not release information about her relationship to him to protect her identity. Proctor is being held without bail at the Pinellas County Jail. According to Florida Department of Corrections records, Proctor served a little more than two years in prison from 1997 to 2000 for committing robbery with a deadly weapon.

Charges include eating marijuana

Marijuana has a reputation of giving users the munchies. Authorities say a Clearwater man took that idea to a whole new level Thursday night as he tried to get rid of some weed. He ate it, they say. Todd A. Mouzon, 33, of 1201 Amble Lane, was arrested Thursday and faces felony charges of marijuana possession, driving with a suspended license, fleeing and eluding a police officer and tampering with physical evidence. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail on Friday morning after posting $17,000 bail. Clearwater police say they pursued Mouzon on Thursday night because he was driving erratically at the intersection of Drew Street and Lake Avenue. While attempting to get him to pull over, an officer said he saw Mouzon consume a "green leafy substance" and throw three bags of marijuana (totaling approximately 30 grams) out the window. Police say Mouzon was seen eating a small amount of marijuana.
