Convicted child molester faces new charges in Pasco

ZEPHYRHILLS — A man already sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison was transferred to the Pasco County jail Thursday to face charges he sexually abused a young girl.

Frank Torres, 53, is accused of molesting the girl in 2005 and 2006, when the child was 8, according to Kevin Doll, spokesman for the Pasco Sheriff's Office. Doll said the abuse happened in Lumberton, which is near Zephyrhills.

Torres was convicted in November of capital sexual battery in Hernando County for molesting a young girl for a period of six years. Earlier this month Circuit Judge Victor Musleh gave Torres four life sentences and an additional 125 years for other counts.

On Thursday in Pasco County, Torres was charged with capital sexual battery. He is being held in the Pasco County jail.
