CLEARWATER — A Clearwater man was arrested Wednesday for molesting a 13-year-old boy last summer, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
Shawn L. Daly, 42, of Cypress Drive in Clearwater, faces one count of lewd and lascivious molestation, authorities said.
Detectives began to investigate in August 2015 after the victim told his mother that Daly had touched him inappropriately.
The victim had been at Daly's apartment in June or July 2015 when Daly, then 41, had offered him gifts and sexual favors, the boy told detectives.
Detectives interviewed Daly, who in 2011 was investigated under similar circumstances in Louisiana, according to the Sheriff's Office. He was not charged in that case.
Detectives believe Daly had contact with other children. Anyone with information about this investigation or other potential victims is asked to call the Crimes Against Children Unit at 727-582-6200.
