NEW PORT RICHEY
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.
