Palm Harbor man accused of molesting child

PALM HARBOR — A 25-year-old man is accused of inappropriately touching an 8-year-old girl, according to authorities.

Charles A. Weaver, of 2240 Hill Road in Palm Harbor, was arrested Sunday on a charge of lewd and lascivious molestation on a victim under the age of 12. On Monday, he was being held without bail in the Pinellas County Jail.

On an arrest report, Weaver lists his employer as the U.S. Air Force. It was not clear Monday afternoon if he was a serviceman or a civilian employee.

According to the report, Weaver touched the girl on her buttocks and genital area over her clothing several times while they were watching a movie together on Saturday.

The girl asked Weaver to stop, but he continued, the report shows.

The girl complained to a family member, who alerted the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, according to an agency spokeswoman. Authorities did not reveal what brought Weaver into contact with the girl.

Weaver does not have a criminal history in Florida, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
