Registered sex offender charged with sexual battery on woman in Dade City

DADE CITY — A 29-year-old registered sex offender was arrested Wednesday after authorities said he tried to have sex with a sleeping woman.

The woman woke up after Cantrell Kennedy pulled her shorts down and she told him to stop touching her, according to the Dade City Police Department. The woman had invited Kennedy over, but told officers she fell asleep before he arrived around 4:20 p.m., authorities said.

Kennedy told officers he knew what he did was wrong but he has "urges," authorities said.

He was charged with sexual battery and remained Thursday at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.
