New Port Richey man accused of molesting two girls

NEW PORT RICHEY — A 48-year-old man was arrested this week after two young women came forward alleging he molested them about a decade ago.

The women, now 19, said the abuse happened when they were 9 to 13 years old. They told deputies that Douglas Eugene Slaney pressed himself against them and kissed them "in a lewd manner," according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

Slaney did not deny the accusations, telling deputies only that he couldn't "recall" doing such things, the report said. He also said he "drank a lot of alcohol" back then.

When the detective suggested alcohol can make people do things they normally wouldn't do, Slaney replied, "That's what I'm afraid of."

Slaney, of New Port Richey, resigned from his position at Morton Plant North Bay Hospital, where he worked full time as a registered nurse. Slaney did not meet the victims through his work capacity, authorities said.

He was charged Tuesday with two counts of lewd and lascivious conduct. He was released from the Land O'Lakes jail after posting $10,000 bail.
