Port Richey man accused of sex act with girl


Man, 23, accused of sex act with girl, 14

The girl told authorities she was 14 when she had sex with Joshua David Quinn, 23, back in February. She said he knew how young she was, and he told her to keep the incident a secret, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

But authorities still found out.

Quinn, now 24, of 7144 Cay Drive, was charged Monday with one count of lewd or lascivious battery. He admitted having sexual contact with the girl, the report said, but said he thought the girl was 16.

Quinn has been in the Land O'Lakes Jail since June 25, when he was charged with violating his probation on a charge of falsely claiming ownership of items he pawned.

He is also charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and was being held without bail.
