Dade City man accused of recording sex acts with girl, 14



DADE CITY — A 22-year-old man was arrested Thursday on charges he took photos and video of himself having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Rogelio Perez-Mejia recorded the sexual encounter with the girl in November, a Dade City police report states. He later created four still images from the video. Deputies also found four images of the girl, nude, in his email account, the report states. He also sent the video and five images to the girl's email account.

Police arrested Perez-Mejia on two charges of lewd and lascivious battery.

Dade City police Chief Ray Velboom said he wasn't sure whether Perez-Mejia will face additional charges of possessing child pornography. The case is being referred to the State Attorney's Office, where lawyers will "fine-tune" the charges, he said.

Perez-Mejia, of Dade City, remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Friday in lieu of $1,000 bail.
