Palm Harbor man charged with sexual battery, molestation of two girls

PALM HARBOR — Pinellas Sheriff's detectives arrested a Palm Harbor man early Friday on charges that he sexually abused two children.

Jason Cord Allen, 38, faces one count of capital sexual battery and two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation.

Deputies investigated a May 25 report that Allen was found touching a 9-year-old girl in a sexual manner at a Pinellas County home. They were told that he had sexually touched another young girl, age 13, on multiple occasions since she was 5 years old.

Both girls are known to Allen, according to reports.

After his arrest, Allen was transported to the Pinellas County Jail and held without bail.
