NEW PORT RICHEY
Three generations of victims testified against Roy Joseph Seavey at his trial last month on a charge of lewd and lascivious molestation. A jury found Seavey guilty of molesting a 14-year-old boy in 2005, for which a judge on Tuesday sentenced him to 14 years in prison. Circuit Judge Jack Day also declared Seavey, 45, a sexual predator and ordered him to serve a year of sex offender probation upon his release from prison, according to the Pasco-Pinellas State Attorney's Office. Citrus County authorities charged Seavey in 1989 with assaulting a 13-year-old. That victim and another man who alleged that Seavey had molested him years before (the case was never prosecuted) testified against Seavey in last month's trial to bolster the case of the newest and youngest victim.

- The former City Hall in downtown New Port Richey was built in 1939. An article in Tuesday's Pasco Times gave an incorrect date based on county property records.
- A story about Pasco County Drug Court on Feb. 2 gave the incorrect source for funds that help pay for drug rehabilitation treatment. Pasco County funds pay for the program.
