Jailed man accused of calling assault victim

A 44-year-old man in jail on sexual assault charges is accused of calling the 10-year-old victim and asking her to change her story.

Danny Ray Cash has been in the Land O'Lakes jail since Jan. 25 on charges of sexual battery and lewd and lascivious molestation. Authorities said Cash raped and molested the girl several times, and "covered her mouth with his hand during the incidents." A medical exam confirmed the girl's allegations of being raped, authorities said.

According to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report, Cash called the girl about 10 p.m. July 13 and told her, "I'm not mad. I just want to (get out of jail) and I can't unless you tell them I didn't do this." Cash also asked the girl, "Do you want me to die in here?" according to the report.

Cash faces a new charge of tampering with a witness. He remains at the Land O'Lakes jail without bail.
