Officials Say Child Endured 6 Years of Terrifying Sex Abuse
BROOKSVILLE – Earlier we reported the arrest of 44-year-old James Preston Boyd, the man charged with sexual battery and lewd and lascivious on a child under 12-years old.
Officials have now released the disturbing details into what led to Boyd’s arrest.
According to reports, investigators believe between July 15th 2006 and June 12th 2015 Boyd sexually molested a child who may have been as young as 9 when the incidents began.
Reports suggest that during that time, Boyd, who is in a family member or in a custodial position, forced the victim to perform oral sex on him numerous times.
For nearly 6 years Boyd sexually battered and performed various lewd acts upon the victim.
During the investigation, the victim was able to positively identify marks on Boyd’s genitalia, resulting in a warrant being issued for his arrest.
Boyd refused to speak to investigators during an interrogation.
Investigators charged Boyd with (1) count of Sexual Battery (under 12), (1) count of Sexual Battery (Over 12) and (4) counts of Lewd and Lascivious (under 12).
Boyd remains behind bars, held without bond.
CORRECTION: Earlier in the report we stated the abuse took place for 9 years. That was in error. The abuse took place for 6 years. We apologize for any inconvenience.
