Holiday man accused of sexual battery on teenage girl during party


Man charged with battery on teen girl

A 23-year-old Holiday man was charged with sexual battery on a physically helpless victim after authorities say he assaulted a 15-year-old girl at a New Port Richey party Saturday.

Charles Richard Jolly III had sex with the girl while she was passed out from drinking alcohol, according to a New Port Richey Police Department report.

Officials said she awoke during the encounter and told him to stop, and someone at the party asked him to leave.

Jolly told police he does not remember the incident, the report said, as he "blacks out" when he drinks. He is in the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $150,000 bail.


Police arrest man in Ohio on sex charge

A 64-year-old man was picked up Wednesday in Canton, Ohio, on a governor's warrant for allegedly performing lewd and lascivious acts on a 7-year-old Moon Lake girl between February and April 2008.

George Robert Carroll, of Alliance, Ohio, was originally arrested on July 13 in Ohio on a Pasco County warrant, but he refused to sign a waiver of extradition, authorities said.

He was transported Wednesday to the Land O'Lakes jail where he was charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation. Carroll's bail was set at $200,000.

  4. Is sinkhole damage sinking Tampa Bay property values?

    Real Estate

    On a scale of desirability, the house for sale on Whittner Drive in Land O' Lakes would rank fairly low. It's a short sale; it sits on an unstabilized sinkhole and it's within a few miles of two houses that collapsed into a gargantuan hole July 16.

    A gated community in Hernando's Spring Hill area, Pristine Place has long been susceptible to sinkholes with nearly a third of its houses with documented sinkhole damage by 2012. Today, however, many houses with repaired sinkhole damage are selling for more than houses without any issues. [WILL VRAGOVIC   |   Times file photo]
