Largo man accused of sexually abusing boy for years

LARGO — A 69-year-old man is accused of molesting a boy dozens of times over the last four years, according to an arrest report.

Richard Bruno Maynard, of 3004 Imperial Palm Drive, was arrested Thursday and charged with sexual battery on a child under the age of 12.

According to the report, Maynard performed sexual acts on the child and coerced the boy to perform sexual acts on him more than 50 times during the four-year span.

The boy, who was not identified by Largo police, turned 12 recently, according to Largo police spokesman Lt. Mike Loux.

Police had the boy call Maynard and during the controlled phone call, he admitted to the sexual abuse, the report shows.

On Friday afternoon, Maynard was being held without bail in the Pinellas County Jail.
