Thonotosassa man, 81, accused of molesting girl

THONOTOSASSA — An 81-year-old man was arrested Thursday, accused of molesting an 11-year-old girl seven years ago, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Between June and July of 2006, Dewey Darrel Risner of 10405 Main St. paid the girl to help him clean his shed. During the girl's visits, Risner also molested her more than 10 times, an arrest affidavit shows. At the time, Risner was 74 years old.

Risner faces a lewd or lascivious molestation charge.

He was booked into the Hillsborough County jail, where he remained Friday in lieu of $25,000 bail.
