Daytona Beach, FL (April 10, 2019) – 44-year-old Stanley Hunter has been arrested for sexually assaulting a girl in Daytona Beach. According to reports, authorities had been looking for Stanley since last summer prior to making the successful arrest this week.
Daytona Beach had obtained a warrant charging Hunter with capital sexual battery on a child under the age of 12 as well as two counts of sexual battery on a minor between 12 and 18.
On three occasions, it is alleged that Hunter sexually assaulted a girl to whom he is not related. The girl told detectives that Hunter inappropriately touched her when she was 11 and choked and raped her when she was 12. He threatened her life if she told anyone what had happened.
Hunter remains in prison without bond at this time due to the fact that he is facing such serious charges and is considered by authorities as a flight risk.
