Man accused of assaulting teen in Oldsmar park faces second charge

A Brandon man arrested last week after deputies said they spotted him having sex with a 15-year-old girl at an Oldsmar park is now accused of sexually assaulting a second girl.

Taurean Roberto Law, 30, sexually assaulted that girl, who is under 16 years of age, in her bedroom on Dec. 15, according to an arrest affidavit. The city where that assault occurred was redacted from the affidavit.

Law was arrested July 7 after deputies patrolling the Oldsmar park noticed him inside of a car with the girl, the Sheriff's Office said.

The two victims are friends, the affidavit states.

Law faces two counts of lewd and lascivious battery, as well as a trespassing charge.

He remained at the Pinellas County jail Tuesday in lieu of $17,750 bail.
