Sex offender arrested again, this time by Largo police


Sex offender charged again in molestation

A convicted sex offender was arrested again this week after police say he touched a child younger than 12 in the genital area. Jason Michael Henry, 30, of 701 2nd St. SE, Largo, was arrested Tuesday and charged with lewd and lascivious molestation. He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail on $100,000 bail. According to a Largo police report, Henry was seen rubbing the genital area of a boy who was sitting on his lap. Police did not give an age for the child. In 2000, Henry was convicted of a sex offense against a child in Pasco County. He was arrested last year in Pinellas County for failing to register as a sex offender.
