Pasco man accused of molesting girl in Clearwater park

CLEARWATER — A Pasco County man was arrested Tuesday by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, accused of lewd and lascivious molestation on a girl under 16, officials said. And they are concerned there may be other victims.

According to reports, Michael Still, 22, of 6840 Tierra Linda St. in Port Richey, went to Coopers Bayou Park on Bayshore Boulevard in Clearwater with some acquaintances on Memorial Day, May 28.

At some point during the day, Still and the victim were alone in his car and he inappropriately touched the victim, according to the Sheriff's Office. Investigators said they later learned that Still also had given the girl alcohol.

When questioned, Still admitted to the acts, according to the Sheriff's Office. On Wednesday, he was being held in the Pinellas County Jail under $20,000 bail.

Detectives were told that Still has associated with other underage females, a news release stated. Detectives ask that anyone with information about Still contact Detective Mark Kolenda with the Crimes Against Children Unit at (727) 582-6200. Or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-873-8477 (TIPS).
