Pasco boy, 14, charged with sexual battery of 5-year-old

WESLEY CHAPEL — A 14-year-old boy was charged with sexual battery Saturday after deputies said he and a 5-year-old boy had oral sex while playing outside.

The 14-year-old, a student at Thomas E. Weightman Middle School, and the 5-year-old were found with their pants down about 5 p.m., an arrest report states. Both boys told deputies they made sexual contact with each other.

The arrest marks the fourth alleged sexual battery by a young boy in Pasco County within the past two weeks.

A Zephyrhills middle school student, deputies said, forced himself on a 3-year-old child. A Land O'Lakes boy accused of raping an 8-year-old girl said, according to a deputy, that he "could not control his urges." A Wesley Chapel boy charged with molesting a 6-year-old girl said, according to an arrest report, that he "learned to do what he did from sex education and watching television."
