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.

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.
