Spring Hill man accused of sexual battery on 15-year-old girl

BROOKSVILLE — Hernando County sheriff's deputies have arrested a 23-year-old Spring Hill man on a count of sexual battery involving a 15-year-old girl.

Nicardo Hamilton is accused of engaging in sexual intercourse with the teen in February and then touching the teen's genitals during an encounter in August, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Hamilton was arrested Thursday afternoon and booked into the Hernando County Jail, where he was being held without bail.

According to the arrest report, Hamilton met the girl on the Internet, where they maintained regular contact.

The teen told detectives that she met with Hamilton near her home in Spring Hill in February and briefly had sex with him in his vehicle, according to the report.

In August, the report said, Hamilton came to the girl's home and invited her to sit in his vehicle. The girl said Hamilton kissed and fondled her breasts, according to the report, then pulled down her pants and touched her genitals. When the girl complained that he was hurting her, Hamilton continued to touch her, the report said.

A physical examination determined the girl had injuries consistent with her statement.

Hamilton was interviewed at the Sheriff's Office and admitted touching the girl, according to the report, but said he thought she was at least 17.

He is set to go to court on Oct. 19.
