A teenager was arrested for physically assaulting a six-year-old girl while she was babysitting her.
Deputies say the incidents happened between August and September of 2019 at a home in Seminole.
19-year-old Erica Michelle Charles was arrested and charged with three counts of molestation (a child less than 12 years old), one count of Prohibition Of Certain Acts In Connection with Indecency.
According to detectives, the investigation began on Oct. 4 after the Florida Department of Children and Family received a report alleging physical abuse involving the six-year-old victim.
Charles was reportedly babysitting the victim and showed her explicit videos on her cell phone. She is also accused of removing the girl’s clothes and directing her to perform physical acts on her.
Charles admitted to the incidents and was taken to the Pinellas County Jail without incident.
It is acknowledged that there may be more victims and they are requesting the public to come forward with any information regarding inappropriate contact Charles may have had with other children.
