Two adults jailed in unrelated Hernando underage-sex cases

BROOKSVILLE — Two Hernando County adults have been accused of having sex with minors in unrelated cases.

In one instance, authorities have accused a 49-year-old Brooksville woman of having sex with a teenage boy.

Elizabeth Marie Mills was arrested Wednesday and charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor; her bail was set at $5,000. A Hernando County Sheriff's Office report identified the victim as a 16- or 17-year-old boy.

The report said Mills and the boy met during a group therapy session in North Carolina in 2008 when he was 15.

The teenager's family moved to Florida in 2009, authorities said, and Mills moved in with the family in September 2010.

The boy's mother, the report said, allowed him and Mills to share a bedroom.

Investigators said Mills admitted to beginning a romantic relationship with the boy in March 2010, adding that the two had sex several times.

In a second case, authorities say a 13-year-old girl's parents followed her to a house in Spring Hill and, through a window, witnessed her having sex with an 18-year-old man.

Diosvany Vigoa Capote was arrested Wednesday and charged with lewd and lascivious battery. His bail was set at $15,000.

On Wednesday, a report said, the girl's parents tracked her cell phone to the house.

The parents held him there until authorities arrived, the report said.

Investigators said the girl told them she had consensual sex with Capote, adding that he later admitted to the act as well.
