SEX OFFENDER IS GIVEN A 14-YEAR PRISON SENTENCE

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. A judge sentenced him Tuesday 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 release from prison, the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's Office said. In 1989, Seavey was charged by Citrus County authorities with assaulting a 13-year-old. That victim, and another victim who alleged Seavey had molested him years before (the case was never prosecuted) testified against Seavey at the trial in the 2005 case, to bolster the case of the newest and youngest victim.

Corrections

- 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.

- The former City Hall in downtown New Port Richey was built in 1939. An article in Tuesday's Pasco Times used an incorrect date based on county property records.
