Dade City man accused of sex acts with Hernando teen

BROOKSVILLE

Man, 21, accused of sex with teenager

A 21-year-old Dade City man has been accused of having sex with a Hernando teenager and sending her computer images of his genitals.

Hunter Lee Widner met the girl online last year and by July, they had developed a "boyfriend-girlfriend'' relationship, according to a Hernando County sheriff's report.

In March, Widner picked up the girl at her bus stop and the two had sex in Widner's car in the woods near Hernando High before he took her back to school, the report states.

On April 28 and 29, the report continues, Widner sent online photos of his genitals to the 15-year-old girl, who told investigators that she and Widner had sex twice before at his home.

Widner was arrested on Wednesday on one count of sexual battery and three counts of computer pornography.
