Holiday man accused of molesting young girl

PALM HARBOR — A 51-year-old man accused of molesting a girl under the age of 12 on several occasions was arrested Thursday, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.

Detectives with the Crimes Against Children unit began investigating Richard Noh of Holiday after the girl told her mother he molested her several times in a Palm Harbor home in April and June last year.

Noh admitted to detectives that he sexually abused the girl, but said it only occurred once, deputies said.

He faces a charge of sexual battery on a child under age 12.

Noh was booked into the Pinellas County jail, where he remained Friday without bail.
