Key Largo – A Key Largo man is under arrest, charged with sexually molesting a young girl.
The girl, who is now in her teens, told detectives from the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit that 50 year old Juan Carlos Molina molested her repeatedly between June of 2005 and January of 2007 when she was between the ages of 8 and 10.
She said the molestation stopped when she and her family moved away from Key Largo. She said he contacted her recently, and she and her family met with him briefly in Homestead. She said the visit made her very uncomfortable and, afterward, she decided to tell her mother what had happened.
After investigating the case, detectives obtained a warrant for Molina’s arrest. He was picked up by Miccosukee Police, then was brought back to Monroe County Wednesday to face charges. Molina is charged with three counts sexual battery on a child; three counts lewd and lascivious molestation of a child and one count lewd and lascivious exhibition.
