DADE CITY MAN, 35, ACCUSED OF RAPING WOMAN IN HER HOME

He said he didn't have sex with the woman. But she told authorities it was rape. About 6 p.m. Nov. 6, Juan Luis "Migo" Jasso-Quinones, 35, of 18300 Bruce Road, Dade City, came uninvited to the woman's home in Lacoochee, a sheriff's report said. He said he wanted to have sex, and when she said no, he pushed her down on the bed, took off her clothes and raped her, the report said.

Jasso-Quinones was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with involuntary sexual battery. He was held at the Land O'Lakes jail Thursday in lieu of $50,000 bail. Authorities withheld the woman's name because of the nature of the charges.

Stolen TVs won't stop restaurant from opening

Construction is running ahead of schedule. Chicken wing appetites are simmering. Beef O'Brady's, the first chain restaurant to locate downtown, is rolling toward a Dec. 9 opening.

But 10 televisions worth $12,000 were stolen. The plasma and LCD sets vanished shortly after they were delivered from Best Buy to the restaurant at Seventh Street and Pasco Avenue on Friday, police said. Only contractors and laborers have access to the building.

Todd Batchelor, the franchise's owner, said he won't let the theft delay him. He'll still open with 28 screens displayed throughout the restaurant. For now, he said, he's planning to replace the stolen TVs. But he's confident they'll turn up.

"You don't just do something like that and not talk about it," Batchelor said.
