A 21-year-old man is accused of sexually molesting a boy at least twice a month for four years.
Corey D. Brown forced the boy to have sexual encounters with him by beating him until he relented, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. The alleged abuse happened from 2005 to 2009, when the victim was 8 to 12 years old. The victim is now 14.
In 2009, Brown was accused of giving alcohol to two similarly aged victims and having intercourse with them, according to the Sheriff's Office. He pleaded no contest that year to two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child and was sentenced to probation, Pasco court records state.
The following year, in June 2010, Brown was sentenced to two years of felony probation for burglary.
Brown, of Hudson, was arrested Wednesday and charged with sexual battery. He is being held at the Pasco jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
