DADE CITY — After months of conversation on Facebook with a 15-year-old girl, officers say, one man went to her house for sex.
In the early evening of Sept. 12, the girl invited Phillip Victor Evans, 23, to her house via Facebook message, a Dade City Police Department report states. Police say he never inquired about her age.
Evans came in through her bedroom window at about 11 that night and the two had sex, the report states. The report says the act was witnessed by the girl's 12-year-old sister.
Evans, of 14009 Morgan St., was arrested Wednesday afternoon on a charge of lewd and lascivious battery on a child under 16. He remained Thursday at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
This is not the first time he's been accused of sexual misconduct with a child. In 2009, he was charged with lewd and lascivious molestation after a woman found Evans, then 20, fondling her 10-year-old son, according to authorities. Court records indicate he was convicted of a lesser charge of child abuse, and after violating his probation, served a year in prison.
That charge, however, did not require him to register as a sex offender.
