Palm Harbor man accused of sexually abusing two 14-year-old girls

PALM HARBOR — Deputies arrested a man on charges he sexually abused two 14-year-old girls.

Christopher Moore, 23, met with the girls April 3, when he spent several hours drinking with them at various friends' houses, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. He then took them to his home at 205 Talley Drive in Palm Harbor, continued drinking and had sexual activity with both of the girls at the same time, authorities said.

On April 4, an adult friend of one of the girls who knew what happened contacted the sheriff's office, which investigated. Thursday, detectives monitored and arrested Moore at a traffic stop on Tampa Road, charging him with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery. Moore remained in jail with bail set at $40,000 Friday.

The girls are not being identified because of their age and the nature of the crime.
