Lealman man accused of molesting 5-year-old

LEALMAN — A 40-year-old man is accused of molesting a young girl over the course of several months, Pinellas deputies said.

Allen Albertson of 5680 28th St. N, Apt. D6, was arrested Wednesday on a charge of capital sexual battery on a child under age 12.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, the girl's family alerted authorities last week after the 5-year-old victim told a family member about the abuse.

Detectives said Albertson performed sexual acts on the child and forced the child to perform the acts on him on eight different occasions over the last several months.

The crimes occurred when the victim was in Albertson's care, at several different residences in Pinellas County, deputies said. They did not disclose if the girl was related to him.
