The victim told deputies and detectives she and her family were on a boat trip with Bobby Brents when the boat broke down. She said during the time they were waiting for a tow to land, Brents fondled her and struggled with her in an effort to remove her clothing.
The victim fought him off and moved to another area of the boat, later telling her mother about the incident.
After an investigation and interviews with everyone concerned, Brents was arrested Saturday. He was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior with the victim between the ages of 12 and 16. He was booked into jail.
