Hudson man picks up fifth arrest on charges he lied about child abuse

HUDSON — A 51-year-old father man was arrested and charged for the fifth time since 2008 with falsely reporting child abuse, after he told his underage son to claim he was molested by his mother's fiance, deputies say.

John Alexander Corvino, 7416 Gulf Breeze Cir., was arrested Thursday afternoon. According to an arrest report, his son made the allegations on May 21, and law enforcement as well as Child Protective Investigations looked into them. On June 2, Corvino made the same allegations.

The juvenile told authorities he made it up because his father told him to. Corvino is in a custody battle with his wife, the report said, and he lied "in an effort to harass the mother and obtain full custody."

Corvino has been previously arrested four times for the same offense. He is out of jail on after posting $5,000 bail.
