Brooksville man accused of fondling toddler


Man faces charge of lewd, lascivious act

A 53-year-old man is accused of fondling a toddler July 3 at his home, according to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office. The 3-year-old girl and her parent were staying with Michael R. Lowe — a family friend — when a witness saw Lowe touching the girl, a report states. Lowe denied ever intentionally touching the child inappropriately, authorities said.

Lowe was arrested Friday and charged with lewd and lascivious act on a child. He was released from the Hernando County jail early Saturday on $15,000 bail.
