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.

  3. See inside this Snell Isle home with an amazing chandelier and infinity pool

    Home and Garden

    When Elizabeth and David Samuelson started planning the house they built six years ago on Snell Isle, the couple envisioned a West Indies look with masonry stucco walls and a metal hip roof. As they moved forward, it evolved into something they describe as coastal contemporary.

    Elizabeth Samuelson and David Samuelson's at the entrance to their Snell Isle house which has numerous luxurious features yet is a comfortable home for a family of four. An infinity pool blends seamlessly from the terrace right into Tampa Bay. Doors surrounding the family room open and are then out of sight enabling the interior to seem more outside than inside. David designed and made a chandelier with hundreds of dangling, clear fish that hangs over the foyer.
