PALM HARBOR — Deputies arrested a 38-year-old Palm Harbor man Tuesday on allegations that he molested two young girls.
Christopher Stark faces five counts of lewd and lascivious molestation and one count of lewd and lascivious conduct, Pinellas County sheriff's officials said. The arrest was made after a 13-year-old girl told an adult at her school Tuesday that Stark had molested her.
Detectives with the sheriff's Crimes Against Children unit investigated and found that Stark touched the girl in an inappropriate manner over a two-year period, deputies said. An investigation also found that Stark had done the same thing to a 12-year-old girl over a one-year period, officials said.
Deputies questioned Stark on Tuesday evening and arrested him, officials said. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail.
