Man, 22, accused of sex with minor


man, 22, held on accusation of sex with minor

A 22-year-old man was arrested Tuesday evening, accused of having sex with a 13-year-old girl, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. A witness told deputies that Brian Williams broke into an empty home with the girl. When questioned by deputies, both admitted they entered the home and had consensual sex, the report said. Williams has been arrested several times in the past on drug and theft charges, as well as driving violations. He was charged with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and lewd and lascivious conduct, and is being held in Land O'Lakes Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail.


Volunteers sought for court reminders

It costs $63 a day to keep an inmate in the county jail, and many of them end up there because they didn't show up for their court dates. Often it's because they didn't know or remember their date with the judge, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said. Two months ago, the Sheriff's Office started a program to call defendants and remind them of their upcoming court dates. Now they are looking for more volunteers to make the calls. "It's interesting work," said Mary Ann Schweitzer, a retiree who volunteers once a week. For information or to sign up, call toll-free 1-800-854-2862.
